Keywords: Bibliometric, Publication, Research Development, Symbolic Power


The purpose of this study is to explore references to one source that can provide benefits for researchers about symbolic power, it is in the interest to use bibliometric methods to map the spification of research, namely 1) to reveal the number of articles produced by symbolic power research. 2) Conduct mapping to review symbolic power research that has been done, and 3) reveal the collaboration map. The method provides objective parameters in controlling literature and provides opportunities to encourage increased accuracy and minimize the bias of researchers in scientific literature reviews by paying attention to the research results of scholars working in the field research area. This bibliometric method provided citation analysis guidelines, co-citation analysis, coupling bibliography, co-author analysis, and co-word analysis, as well as work guidelines. Bibliometric methods would complement the meta-analysis and review of qualitatively structured literature as a method for exploring and evaluating scientific literature. To demonstrate bibliometric methods, it was done with citation analysis and co-citation to map the intellectual structure of symbolic power journals. The results showed that the investigation of human-related symbolic power was shown by 109 events widely published by the database during 2012-2022. From the mapping carried out through bibliometrics shows that the trend of research is related to the term human keywords.
