This paper aims to apply citation analysis to identify the emerging trends in the area of Web-based training which have been highlighted through Table III.


The analysis is based on citation index analysis from journal citation report 2015 published by Thomson Reuters and science citation index database report (1990 to 2015).To undergo the analysis, we have selected journals in the area of Web-based training/e-learning from the database of 167,214 journals, and some of the information has been collected from various blogs to know the trends taking place in this area.


This review analysis primarily focuses on Web-based training and its research trend between 2010 and 2015. The results indicate that most of the research that has happened in this area mainly concentrate on four things: perception of employees towards Web-based trainings, choosing a mode of training, return on investment (ROI) on training transfer and performance post training.


This study may benefit other research scholars from management and humanities field seeking understanding about research trends and emerging trends in the area of Web-based training.
