Bibliometric Analysis of Research Publication Trends on Job Rotation Satisfaction




Bibliometric Approach, Job Rotation, Job Satisfaction, Performance, Scopus


Objective: Advances in data analysis tools enable the analysis of a large body of literature in the ever-growing study of Job Rotation. With the help of the Vosviewers application, you can answer research questions: the status of Job Rotation articles published in the selected journals from January 2014 – December 2023 and whether the number of Job Rotation articles has increased or decreased, and the main research topics studied in this article from 2014 to 2023, and whether it has shifted over the last 10 years.


Design/methodology/approach: The method used in this research is qualitative research with a literature study approach. As for the data found, 233 documents were obtained and analyzed. This dataset was converted to CSV format and imported for Bibliometrix in analysis using VOSviwer and analysis included publication distribution year, country, keywords, and authors.


Findings: The findings in this research show that 2023 will be the year with the highest number of research publications on the Job Rotation theme. The United States was identified as the country that made the largest contribution to the publication of this research. Kapellusch, J.M. is the author who contributed the most in terms of number of publications. Furthermore, the topics of work performance, motivation, talent management, and occupational safety provide great opportunities for further research to investigate these dimensions in more depth. This research also underlines the importance of bringing new contributions to the understanding of Job Rotation through further exploration of these topics.


Research limitations/implications: The main limitation of the research should be considered the use of data derived only from the Scopus database.


Originality/value: The paper reveals research trends and key research subject areas of research over the past 10 years. The results can help scholars to quickly understand job rotation research. This paper also provides an alternative approach to conducting literature reviews with computer-assisted analysis programs. The future focus for future research is towards a more thorough understanding of Job Rotation, as well as its implications in the context of human resource management and increasing organizational productivity.
