Abstract

Extensive research has been conducted on the link between foreign direct investment
and sustainability (FDIS). The earliest known document related to FDIS
research in SCOPUS databases dates to 1992, indicating nearly three decades of
ongoing research. The objective of this article is to conduct a bibliometric analysis
of FDIS academic research from various perspectives. A total of 641 documents
related to FDIS fields were collected and subjected to a comprehensive bibliometric
analysis using state-of-the-art scientometric software. The findings from the
analyses allowed us to identify leading researchers, conceptual structure, and
thematic evolution of FDIS research.
