Supplementary material for the paper titled (tentative title) "Discrete-Event Simulation in logistics and supply chain management: a scientometric perspective". The dataset include the sample of papers reviewed (127 documents) and the main outcomes of the analyses made. The procedure for carrying out the analyses is provided in the paper.


Steps to reproduce

The sample of paper was obtained by making queries on the Scopus database and subsequent refinements. The classification of authors and journals is based on the procedure by Bottani et al. (2022). The keyword analysis follows the procedure by Fadlalla and Amani (2015). All the steps followed to create the sample of papers and making the appropriate analyses are described in the paper.
