Abstract

Economic geography is a discipline that studies the spatial distribution, evolution and influence of economic activities on the earth 's surface. With the continuous development of economic globalization, economic geography has attracted more and more attention. In order to explore the research status and hotspots of economic geography in the field of economics, the core collection database of Web of Sciences papers was used as the retrieval database, and the papers from 1998 to 2022 were retrieved by inputting subject words. The literature analysis tool and Histcite of Web of Sciences were used to statistically analyze the retrieved literature information, and the publication and citation of basic knowledge papers in different years, countries, journals and disciplines were analyzed. The CiteSpace software was used to analyze the hot spots and draw the knowledge map. The study found that there is still a gap between China’s economic geography and the United States, Britain and other countries in the field of economics. There are more and more studies on economic geography, but there are some changes in the research direction. More and more studies focus on the impact of geographical factors such as geographical location, geographical environment and geographical relations on the economy, the impact of agglomeration on the economy, and the impact of global production networks on the economy.
