BIBLIOMETRIC STUDY OF MUSIC THERAPY ARTICLES PUBLISHED IN PUBMED, WoS AND SCOPUS BETWEEN 2012 AND 2022.
Daniel Torea. Professor of the master of music therapy at the University of Paris
There are currently no studies of the state of the art of music therapy as a discipline. For this reason, a bibliometric study of scientific production in music therapy has been carried out through articles published between 2012 and 2022 on the prestigious scientific platforms Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed. To carry out this study, a total of 18,179 articles have been cataloged. This has been done through categories and labels awarded to each article depending on its nature, using Excel and VOSviewer to process the data obtained. The results show a domination by English-speaking countries in terms of volume of publication, but in terms of impact and citation, it is the European countries that surpass the rest by far. There are also several phenomena such as the case of China, a country whose citation feeds back creating a bubble of false international impact. At the same time, there is evidence of a problem in the cataloging of thousands of articles as a result of a possible bad image on the part of music therapy, which also implies a possible bad or insufficient communication.
