5th International Scientific Conference on Recent Advances in Information Technology, Tourism, Economics, Management and Agriculture – ITEMA 2021, Online/virtual, October 21, 2021, SELECTED PAPERS published by the Association of Economists and Managers of the Balkans, Belgrade; Printed by: SKRIPTA International, Belgrade, ISBN 978-86-80194-50-9, ISSN 2683-5991, DOI: https://doi.org/10.31410/ITEMA.S.P.2021



Financial theory encompasses several financial domains, as man­agement, budgeting, or investing. Over time, different topics have been ad­dressed in financial policies in different countries, which were followed by aca­demics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, specific crisis-related issues have been addressed to contribute to the financial dimensions of individuals and compa­nies. In order to map the literature addressing financial issues and to locate the research topics in content and time, this study conducts an automated com­puter analysis of the bibliometric data addressing financial issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The analysis provides empirical evidence of the main research channels and the topics receiving the most attention in 2020.
