Women in Corporate Governance in Banking: A Bibliometric Analysis
The vital players on the financial market in developing countries, banks, need strong corporate governance to ensure better performance and stability. This is the first study that investigates the impact of women in corporate governance in the banking industry and identifies research hotspots. The focus is on journal-published papers indexed in the Web of Science (WoS) database. Descriptive analytics is used to show how papers are distributed in the observed period as well as by publisher, category in the WoS, and the most cited authors and papers. Content analysis is used to examine how women impact corporate governance in the banking industry. By mining the abstracts, research hotspots are identified for the entire examined period and for the last five years. In the last five years, 70.4% of papers have been published, indicating that researchers' interest in this area is growing. Emerald Publishing Group LTD is the top publisher, while the most cited authors are Berger, A.N., Kick, T., and Schaeck, K. The keywords "approach, responsibility, difference, institution, commitment, financial performance, and risk" were the most frequently used in the whole analyzed period, while in the last five years, the most commonly used keyword is "value". The positive impact of women in corporate governance prevails, especially on CRS disclosure data, bank performance, stability, and value. Our findings may serve as a starting point for further research for academics, researchers, and banking professionals, as well as for shareholders and regulatory bodies when composing the bank boards.
