Research background: The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has affected to vary degrees the way of life of global society and the country’s economies. Subsequent social, economic, and political crises inevitably provoke part of the scientific community to focus their research interest, towards COVID-19 impact. The pandemic may have encouraged companies and policy makers to further revise the existing corporate social responsibility, apart from adjusting to the ongoing crisis and what is more to establish resilience for similar future shocks.
Purpose of the article: The purpose of the current research is to perform bibliometric analyse on the scientific papers linking COVID-19 regarding the corporate social responsibility and to elaborate the basis for future research. The aim of the article was derived from the fact that so far there are limited if no research done on the topic.
Methods: The main method applied in the current study is the bibliometric, which identified 186 relevant articles in the Web of Science and 172 in Scopus databases. The information resources of both databases were used in order to gain the databank required for the research by selecting the following keywords: “Social corporate responsibility” and “COVID-19”. The results have been visualised and analysed via VOSviewer.
Findings & Value added: The findings include bibliometric analysis on the existing knowledge on corporate social responsibility during the COVID-19 crisis. The research can be used as a model for data analysis of similar type of research.
Key words: corporate social responsibility / COVID-19 / bibliometric analysis / VOSviewer
