Bibliometric analysis of the literature on evaluation models of the bankruptcy risk
Keywords:companies in crisis, models of the bankruptcy risk, bibliometric analysis
Background: To manage an enterprise effectively, it is necessary to analyze and diagnose its financial condition, an activity that can warn management of dangerous business situations. Topics such as assessing financial position, performance, and risk, especially after situations that involve an economic and financial crisis in the company have been widely discussed in scientific literature.
Purpose: The purpose of the research is to highlight the main research trends regarding bankruptcy risk assessment models.
Study design/methodology/approach: The research strategy is based on two main directions: the first involves the selection of research papers with topics on Conan & Holder and Taffler models published on WoS between 2007 and 2021 and those published on SCOPUS between 2006 and 2021. The second direction aims to select the relevant papers and perform a content analysis of financial-accounting information of Conan & Holder and Taffler models.
Findings/conclusions: The results obtained were concretized in the design of a bibliometric analysis of bankruptcy risk assessment models, which provides an overview of the new research trends regarding bankruptcy risk assessment models. Thus, it was found that most of the studies focus on the analysis of the efficiency of the bankruptcy risk assessment methods and the identification of new options that allow predictability of the risk.
Limitations/future research: Our study limitations are mainly due to the bibliometric algorithm, in the sense that only papers indexed in WoS and Scopus can be imported, processed, and interpreted, which excludes parts of the existing literature on this topic and omits the analysis of some pertinent contributions to our research area. This research can be used as a cornerstone for new research directions, both quantitative and qualitative, on the mechanism of application of bankruptcy risk prevention methods.
