English abstract

Background and aim: Nowadays, one of the most important methods of scientific evaluation is scientometric studies. The results of these studies can be seen as a roadmap for research planners and policymakers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Journal of Applied Research of Sport Management (JARSM) from a scientometric point of view. Material and methods: In this applied and scientometric study, all articles of the JARSM from 2012 to 2018 were analyzed. The data were collected through the journalchr ('39')s website and analyzed using Excel and NodeXL. Findings: Of the 279 articles published in the JARSM, 93% were multi-author publications and more than 31% were published in collaboration with scholars from Payame Noor University. This indicates the great interest of this journal in group collaboration as well as the publication of articles affiliated to their own university. Moreover, the thematic areas of sport management, organizational behavior and sport marketing have received more attention. Tehran and West Azerbaijan Provinces had the highest number of papers in JARSM. In addition, the journal has received the most impact from the Journal of Sport Management and Development, and has made the most scientific impact on the Journal of Sport Management. Conclusion: Overall, the results show that the publication trend in the JARSM is sinusoidal, and its citation rate has been accompanied by a downward trend after a period of an upward one.
