Abstract
Platform is a topic that has been shaped by numerous articles for years. This study makes a contribution by a bibliometric analysis of academic research on platform in management, business and economics areas. The author analyzes 619 articles on platform from the Web of Science database from 1978 to 2018. Various methods are used to perform the bibliometric analysis: performance analysis and scientific maps. Furthermore, VOSviewer is used to map the bibliographic data. This study shows networks of references, journals and authors, indicating their impacts on the platform’s research. The results will enhance understanding of platform research and enable future scholars to focus their own studies effectively.
