Özet

This study conducts a comprehensive bibliometric analysis of the reflection in the academic literature on psychological problems such as stress, depression, fatigue, burnout, and hopelessness, which more than 1 million seafarers suffer from due to the unique challenges of maritime such as isolation, demanding work schedules, harsh conditions, and separation from loved ones. The bibliographic data is collected from both the Web of Science and Scopus databases, subsequently, a total of 318 determined studies were analyzed using Bibliometrix tool of R software, and Excel-based systematic content analysis. Through citation analysis metrics, we identify the most influential publications, journals, authors, and institutions in this domain. Utilizing bibliographic coupling methodology, we uncover four fundamental research clusters: Research Design, Spatial Design, Data Collection Tools, and Assessment Approaches. Furthermore, we present research collaboration networks at the levels of institutions, authors, and countries to illuminate prevailing trends in maritime psychology. This comprehensive bibliometric analysis offers a nuanced understanding of maritime psychology, revealing evolving trends, research methodologies, and critical thematic clusters. It underscores the growing significance of seafarers' mental health in academic research and the need for holistic interventions in the maritime industry.
