Science Mapping in Educational Leadership Research: Bibliometric Analysis, 1907 to 2022


Educational leadership stands as a prominent research domain in education, where leaders play a guiding role, impacting educational culture and quality. With the pandemic of COVID-19 has compelled a shift to online learning for students, with educators striving to effectively engage learners in this digital landscape. Financial constraints have led to layoffs and cost-cutting in educational institutions, though some schools innovatively expanded. In response, educational institutions must forge fresh leadership strategies tailored to these unique challenges. This study utilized VOSviewer to investigate network diagrams relevant to educational leadership research. By categorizing clusters and analyzing their positional relationships, the study discerned attributes and connections within structured network diagrams, bolstering its argument. This study performed a bibliometric analysis of 8,489 papers published in the Scopus database from 1907 to 2022. Four key themes emerged: educational leadership as a catalyst for equity, inclusivity, and professional growth; educational leadership's intricate interplay with teacher development, student achievement, and school climate; The transformative impact of educational leadership in the COVID-19 era; Educational leadership is a key element in driving school improvement and development. Based on research findings, the post-COVID-19 era necessitates novel educational leadership styles, propelling teaching and learning, nurturing talent, and advancing educational objectives.
