Environmental issues and social responsibility: a scientomeric analysis using citespace
Environmental issues and social responsibility have a significant impact on the natural ecological system and economic development. Hence, it is essential to find a relative balance path between them. Previous studies have sought to explore environmental and social responsibility rather than seek solutions from a systematic perspective, and there seems to be a lack of a systematic quantitative review of periodic solutions or details. To identify multiple impacts and relationships between environmental issues and social responsibility and to illustrate emerging trends and challenges, this article proposes a scientometrics review based on 1,336 articles published from 2001 to 2020, through co-occurrence analysis and co-citation analysis together with cluster and burstiness analysis to reveal the depth and breadth of emerging research. This research demonstrates the research paradigm of environmental issues and social responsibility, extending from a single stakeholder level to a systematic strategic perspective of multiple organizations and stakeholders. The results provide researchers and practitioners with a deeper understanding of future directions and implications.
