ABSTRACT: What are the characteristics of the literature published in the Journal of Wine Research? This article examines all 317 research articles published in the Journal of Wine Research from 1990 to 2015 along five key dimensions; authorship, author institutions, manuscript characteristics, research themes, and citation impact. Our analysis shows a trend towards co-authorship and increased collaboration among multiple institutions. We also conclude that academics are responsible for the majority of articles and that European authors lead the way in publishing productivity. Other findings include a trend towards longer articles that cite more references. Articles focussing on the business of wine have increased over time and are most prevalent. Using citation analysis, we find that the large majority of publications in the Journal of Wine Research have been cited. Altogether, our investigation depicts the history, evolution, and trajectory of the Journal of Wine Research to date, therein giving scholars in the field the only research that provides detailed insight into the contours of this important journal.
