Abstract

This paper aims to determine the worldwide research trends on searching queries of “oil spill* and risk assessment*” and “net environmental benefit analysis” and its most productive authors and journals. A bibliometric approach was performed to analyze publications including highly cited papers and only papers that were published in the Dimensions database from 2000 to 2022, April was selected. The necessary data were extracted from the Dimensions database and processed using visualization and mapping software such as VOSviewer 1.6.17 and Tableau Public 2021.1. The findings identified significant study fields, co-cited authors, country contributions, productive journals, as well as the most cited authors' articles. This study contributes significantly to the relevant studies as one of the few that utilizes bibliometric analysis as a network visualization and mapping technique for the analysis of one of the primary oil spill response decision-making tools and risk assessment sciences. The findings of this study can assist the researcher perform their research more effectively by providing insight into journal selection, contributing authors, research trends, countries, and keywords. Further research is recommended in light of longer period data contained in oil spill response strategies, oil spill modeling, or oil spill risk subjects.
