We utilised Harzing’s Publish and Perish to analyse basic evaluations before proceeding withVOSviewer for data visualisation purposes. The findings highlight the trend of literature on ‘sustainable management’since its inception in 1992until today. The number of publications achieved 100 publications since 2018and keptincreasing each year. Most previous publications were in English, with more than 164authors from more than117different countries. Using specific keywords of ‘sustainable management’, the results were derived based on the titlesand keywords of the documents. Thus, the results of the search query for other fields such as abstracts, and differentkeywords are excluded.
