Scientific authorship in DSS research: Past trends and future opportunities
Keenan, Peter B.
Springer Nature Ltd.
Over a period of almost 60 years, Decision Support Systems (DSS) research has focused on supporting managerial decision-making, drawing on contributions from diverse fields including Economics, Operations Research/Management Science (OR/MS), Information Systems (IS), and Management. To better understand the DSS landscape, this article uses a bibliometric analysis to investigate current publishing trends in DSS as a research area, co-authorship by gender, and location. By leveraging Scopus, we identify notable patterns and developments in DSS research authorship from 2018 to 2022. We present initial recommendations to guide the future research efforts of both DSS academics and practitioners.
