  • Scientometric review of global E-procurement research trends from 1976 to 2022   Order a copy of this article
    by Muhammad Aliyu Yamusa, Haruna Sa'idu Lawal, Muhammad Abdullahi, Ahmed Aminu 
    Abstract: This study conducts a review on the research trend of studies on e-procurement. 1,323 publications were recovered from Scopus database by means of some selected keywords from 1976 and 2022. A scientometric analysis was the used to extract bibliometric data using the VOS viewer software. Results of the review confirm that there has been a general increase in e-procurement research in the last decades. However, a major upsurge in publications was realised from 2000. This strengthens claims that e-procurement has become a crucial issue in global practice. Additionally, the USA, UK, India, Australia and Malaysia were found to be the leading countries in e-procurement research. Lastly, the study found electronic commerce, supply chain management, and public procurement to be the major focus of e-procurement studies. This paper contributes to e-procurement body of knowledge through the provision of an all-purpose overview of e-procurement research trend, thus crafting a basis for forthcoming efforts in research of this essential domain.
