Abstract

The study aims at mapping the intellectual discourse that has emerged from Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM) conference within the last 11 years. To this end, the 1505 studies indexed in Scopus were examined through scientometric analyses of citation networks. The findings show that the most prominent areas of research including "sustainable development", "health and safety" and "architectural design" have been predominantly conducted from a project management perspective. New fields of research such as Building Information Modelling have gained momentum with several years of delay after their emergence across the construction context. Besides, published studies in ARCOM have for the most part cited studies from journals allocated to managerial areas of construction management as well as management and business journals. Technology and engineering journals nevertheless turned out to have a noticeably lower share of citation. Moreover, the network of collaborations among countries indicated the dominance of the UK and Australia and underrepresentation of North American, emerging markets and developing countries. By providing a view from a meta-perspective, the study exposes the areas in need of extra attention, provides directions for defining future research themes and suggests remedial solutions for addressing the spotted problems.
