Peer reviewed, Journal article
MetadataShow full item record
Despite numerous reviews of space syntax research, there has been little emphasis on the field's main characteristics and tendencies, including publication trends, geographical distribution, leading authors and institutions, collaboration networks, influential publications, research fronts, and research gaps. Bibliometric analysis techniques were employed to review nearly five decades of publications (1976–2023) drawn from multiple data sources to assess the field's annual trend of publications; its social, intellectual, and conceptual structures; and future research directions. The findings provide an overview of the landscape of space syntax studies and a valuable reference for a wide range of academics and professionals.
