Title: The top-100 most-cited articles on palliative care in nursing: A bibliometric analysis and visualized study


In recent years, the need for palliative and palliative care nursing has increased due to life expectancy and the aging population. The importance of palliative care has been increasingly recognized and has been the subject of more studies in recent years. This study provides a bibliometric and visualized analysis of the top 100 most-cited articles on palliative care in nursing. The aim is to reveal trends in the palliative care field and provide a reference for researchers. The 100 most frequently cited studies in the field of palliative care were collected from the Web of Science Core Collection (WoSCC) on 11 December 2022 and were analyzed in terms of the annual publication, countries, institutions, authors, journals, and keywords. We used VosViewer and Microsoft Excel tools during the study to present the visual information better. A total of 6,601 publications were retrieved, of which 4,909 were of the article and review article types, among which we selected the 100 most frequently cited. The top 100 articles received 8173 citations from 28 different journals, and the most cited article received 191 citations. The Journal of Advanced Nursing and the Journal of Clinical Nursing was the most influential journals in this field. 337 authors from 19 countries contributed to the top 100 list. Addington-Hall JM and Luker KA were the most authoritative authors in the field. According to the results, the USA, England, Australia, and Sweden were the most broadcasting countries and the most open to co-country cooperation. This study presents a list and analysis of the 100 top-cited articles and review articles published on palliative care in the nursing category. This study allowed us to acquire information about the annual publication, countries, institutions, authors, journals, and topics encompassing the history and development of the study of palliative care in nursing.
