Abstract for: SYSTEM DYNAMICS A bibliometric analysis of System Dynamics Review

System Dynamics Review is the most important journal for knowledge dissemination of System Dynamics Methodology. This study analyzes the thirty years of this journal publication by a bibliometric study and a social network analysis of its papers. Main authorship and co-authorships were analyzed; authors and their most influential works; the institutions to which the authors were linked; the geographical origin of authors and institutions; partnerships between these authors and their positions in social network. This research suggests these authors form small groups which are too concentrated in the United States of America.
