Author's abstract

In this chapter, we aim to address the critique in the lack of comprehension about the emerging research in High-performance work systems (HPWS) by providing a systematic and analytic overview of the field. We aim to identify the key studies, identify main themes and provide suggestions for future research about HPWS. To do this we apply the bibliometric techniques of citation, co-citation and coupling to assess the scientific publications on the topic of HPWS. This will enable us to build a better understanding of the field in terms of geographic location of main authors and the key journals that are publishing on the topic. Based on our bibliometric approach, we find that HPWS is primarily centred around strategy, productivity, institutions and psychology. Moreover, we show that the HPWS research is centred around key authors in certain geographic locations that often work together. We interpret this as HPWS being a key field of research that will continue to grow in the future. In addition, our analysis indicates that there are gaps in the existing literature that can be filled by new sport-related theoretical and methodological approaches that take an interdisciplinary perspective.
