A Bibliometric Analysis of Carbon Capture and Storage Research
MetadataVis full innførsel
Purpose of the study: The purpose of this thesis is to identify the relevant research, its focus, development, and most influential contributions concerning the capture, transportation, and storage of carbon dioxide. Methodology: The research was conducted by using a bibliometric analysis to investigate the 92 publications in the research field from 2006-2020. The bibliometric analysis used citation, co-citation, bibliographic coupling, and co-occurrence techniques, as well as a text mining analysis was performed to substantiate the bibliometric analysis. Findings: The study reveals that the research field of carbon capture and storage is growing and maturing. Given the small number of influential documents and that the documents are only relatively connected provides significant room for further development. Many organizations and researchers have contributed to the research field, but only a few influential and productive players make a noticeable difference. Research implications and limitations: The analysis revealed that there are several implications for the research. The study was limited due to the sample extracted from the Web of Science. Some documents may exist in other databases such as Scopus or google scholar. Time is also a limitation in this study. The period selected for data collection (2006-2020) is relatively new, and the documents published at the end of the period have not had enough time to be widely cited. Contribution: This study extends the approach to explore the research development and gaps through a bibliometric analysis. The research and publications performance of individuals and institutions may help to stimulate and benefit the research regarding the topic. At the same time as it identifies the future research areas for carbon capture and storage.
