This study aims to perform a bibliometric analysis of documents published in the field of Public Administration during the years 1923-2020. In this bibliometric study, all Web of Science (WOS) databases were used to retrieve the publications in this field. Using a proper search strategy, 93093 records were retrieved in the WOS database from 1923 to 2020. Excel and VOSviewer software were used for bibliometric analysis and visualization of documents. The findings show that 64.31% of documents (59860 documents) were articles; most documents were published in the Public Administration Review-Journal (n= 9011). The United States (with 31930 documents), ENGLAND (with 14636 documents), and Canada (with 7104 documents) published the most documents in this field, respectively. The University of Birmingham was the most productive institution (n=1,441, 1.54 %). Meier, K. J. S was the most productive author (n= 119, 0.12%). Keywords with the highest frequency were "management", "governance", "government", "policy", "performance", "politics", "state", and "organizations". The most co-occurrence keywords existed within three clusters, the first including keywords related to policy issues, the second including author keywords about management and performance, and the third including keywords related to state and local management. The global trend of publications in the field of Public Administration has been upward, from 54 documents in 1923 to 4561 documents in 2020. This study not only presents a full view of global Public Administration research but also can contribute to future research in this field and bibliometric studies.

Illiteracy can be a significant obstacle to any given country's economic and social development. Hence, exploiting the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help solve this problem by creating proper solutions for the illiterate and low-literate population. This study provides search and retrieval strategies for Iran's illiterate or low-literate population by designing an appropriate website. The research method in this study is mixed. A total of 65 individuals were selected using the snowball sampling method. First, by designing qualitative research of ethnographic type, we examined the critical information needs of the research sample. After equalizing the process and information needs, a website was created for the research sample and was provided to them. The designed website does not require human assistance to search for information. In addition, the website uses graphic and audio content related to local culture and language. ISO-9241-11 standard was used to evaluate the performance of the website designed in the research. Furthermore, it examines the characteristics of participants, i.e., gender, and previous experience of using computers and mobile phones on the website's usability. Since the present study population was low-illiterate and illiterate, the research time to prepare them to answer the questions was very long. The results revealed considerable effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction with the website among the participants. Moreover, the gender variable did not affect how they use the website and their inclination in this respect. Providing the services required by this group of users in any way, including appropriate cyberspace, increasing literacy rates and meeting the information needs of this group at a far lower cost than traditional education, can be taken into account as one of the requirements of governments. The current study is the first experimental research to measure the needs and create suitable tools for using the virtual world on the part of low-literate and illiterate people in Iran.https://dorl.net/dor/20.1001.1.20088302.2022.20.4.16.5

As one of the main bibliometric concepts, co-authorship has been thoughtfully considered in recent years. Despite many bibliometric studies on the co-authorship in different scientific fields and worldwide countries/regions, Iranian researchers' collaboration in the management field has not been studied. This study aimed to investigate the co-authorship networks in the management papers contributed by Iranian researchers indexed in the Web of Science (WoS) during the recent half-century (years, 1969-2018). Bibliometric data on 5414 papers were extracted from WoS and analyzed in Excel, UCINET, and VOSviewer to measure bibliometric indicators, the map needed co-authorship networks, and depict time-based maps and keyword clustering. Findings showed that co-authored papers increased from two items in 1973 to 721 items in 2018. Expert Systems with Applications, African Journal of Business Management, and International Journal of Production Research were ranked first to third in co-authored papers. Top 20 authors published about 17% of papers (946). Islamic Azad University, University of Tehran, and the Amirkabir University of Technology ranked first to third. Most co-authorship frequencies were made from 2012 to 2014. The first to third ranks of collaborating countries were the USA, Canada, and England. Six main keyword clusters were formed, including main topics in the field. In conclusion, Iranian researchers increasingly co-authored in management, especially during the last decade, and published in various journals that some top ones are prestigious journals. However, some gaps need to be bridged by the low contribution of research institutes and universities countrywide and the limited number of authors with high productivity and low collaboration with neighbor countries and influential universities worldwide.https://dorl.net/dor/ 20.1001.1.20088302.2022.20.1.19.2
