ARANIBAR-RAMOS, Edgar Romario; SALINAS-GAINZA, Freddy Raúl  y  SEGUIL-ORMENO, Nilton Axel. Exploring trends in the public sphere: scientometrics and systematic review. Universitas [online]. 2023, n.39, pp.109-135. ISSN 1390-8634.

In this research, it was shed light on the imperative of ensuring effective government services and sustainable policies in the context of modernity. The study utilized a combination of scientometric analysis and systematic literature review to explore the current landscape of public administration and management. The analysis of the latest Scopus publications revealed a noticeable increase in research production over the past five years. There were identified three categories of trends: consolidated, intermediate, and emerging. Prominent themes included governance, transparency, corruption, e-government, and sustainability, while emerging trends encompassed public health, big data, open government, digital transformation, and smart cities. The findings emphasize the critical role of effective governance and citizen participation in shaping health-related policies, as well as the strategic adoption of technologies to improve service delivery. Looking ahead, it is proposed further investigation into emerging and intermediate trends, along with addressing identified thematic gaps such as public-private and international collaboration for sustainable governance, addressing health disparities in vulnerable communities and the role of higher education to develop ethical leaders. Moreover, the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on achieving developmental goals in developing countries merits in-depth exploration. This research contributes valuable insights for policymakers, academics, and practitioners seeking to enhance public administration practices and meet the evolving needs of society.
