The PRISMA framework or Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA), is a set of guidelines or steps developed by Moher.
A systematic literature review attempts ‘to identify, appraise and summarise all the empirical evidence. Evidence must meet pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a given research question. A systematic review of literature helps to develop the study that allows identification, quality, limitations and potential.
Challenges of bibliometrics arise at every checkpoint of bibliometrics. Thus, the last section of the bibliometric analysis comprises of challenges with respect to mapping and scattering analysis. Moreover, the challenges also comprise of interpretation from data analyses of mapping and scattering.
Bibliometric studies are not a recent trend of studies. Bibliometrics are in simple terms metrics of bibliography where the studies are focused on understanding the trend of researches on a particular field of study or diverse field of studies (Hicks, Wouters, Waltman, De Rijcke, & Rafols, 2015). Bibliometrics are statistical analyses of written publications, books, journals or thesis articles and are frequently used in the field of library and information science, including scientometrics (Arsenova, 2013; Leydesdorff, 2015).
Challenges of bibliometrics arise at every step of the study, selection of the specific software and type of analyses done. Thus, this article presented both the challenges and the solutions occurring in data analysis of bibliometrics.
