Abstract

Background and Study Aim. This study aims to chart the trend of publications in the Scopus database and the Web of Science as well as the global evolution of harassment and bullying in sports. Material and Methods. ScientoPy and VOSviewer software were used in this study to analyze the number of publications, well-known research topics, proactive authors, author keywords, preferred sources, and institutional data. This study uses data reconciliation with 1, 883 different items from the Scopus database and the Web of Science. An increasing trend in sports nutrition research was found using the Scopus and WoS databases. Results. This field has grown significantly since 2015. In addition, the percentage of documents published in the last two years (2020 to 2021) shows that 22.40% were published on WoS and 22.04% on Scopus. The five keywords that are trending topics between 2020 and 2021 are "Sports", "Racism", "Race", "Sexual Harassment", and "Gender". Meanwhile, the keywords with the highest total link strength were "sports" (244), "racism" (169), "bullying" (165), "adolescents" (161), and "physical activity" (150). The University of Toronto, Canada, became the most productive institution with 22 publications. Conclusions. The most prestigious institutes and researchers in the field of harassment and bullying research in sports have been recognized, along with key research areas, keywords, and related papers. The study also offers potential readers and researchers a global perspective on the hottest issues in harassment and bullying in sport today. In addition, it provides various analyses to assist in the organization of data for the development of harassment and bullying research theories and methodologies in strong sports.
