Abstract: This article intends to chart the evolution of the concepts of “Party Leaders and Leadership Selection” in 195 articles spanning 84 years (1937–2021) and “Party Leadership” in 160 papers spanning 60 years (1961–2021), sourced from the reputable international journal Scopus Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4. Identify the Basic Concepts of “Party Leadership” and Variants of Party Leadership using the Harzing Publish or Perish (PoP) tool and retrieve data sources. In addition, the findings of the full article are revealed, including the number of citations, the name of the publisher, the location of the research, the author’s country of origin, and the trends in leadership themes. The methodology in this paper’s data is processed using the VOS Viewer bibliometric program, which visualizes title mapping and party leader or party leadership themes. Based on the findings of this review, political scientists should conduct additional research on a variety of topics, including the leadership and leadership of political parties in contact with communication, and the leadership of political parties in the face of the growing threat of political party oligarchy. This problem can be understood in terms of major obstacles to lowering the quality of political party leadership, namely the weakening of the selection procedure for leaders and political party leadership, and the problem is still weak in terms of strengthening political party leaders and leadership. Based on the results of the study, it is very important for the study of political parties to improve the quality of the selection of political party leaders through strengthening the selection of party leaders.

Keywords: Party Leader, Party Leadership, Selection, Strengthening, Network, Mapping


This article explores the idea map of “Party Leader” and “Party Leadership” in all renowned international journals from the beginning of publishing till 2020. (Scopus). This article also analyzes the most recent advances in the two concepts presented in a paper between January 2021 and May 2022 at the conclusion of the study. Examining publishing results, reviewing linkages and connectedness in the VOSViewer network, finding sub-topics that dominate, and the sustainability of leadership studies are the two primary items to consider while mapping the two ideas.
