    Security management has become a topical issue in supply chain management (SCM). Researchers are keen to address issues related to the prevention, mitigation, and recovery from security incidents and to the development of security management systems with cost efficiency consideration. This study presents a citation network analysis (CNA) of supply chain security (SCS) by analysing 143 sample SCS articles. Specifically, we conduct a cluster analysis and a main path analysis to identify the research clusters in SCS literature and show knowledge transformation in SCS chronically. We identify four research clusters, which are: 1) SCS conceptualisation and application; 2) security management systems; 3) transportation security; 4) terrorism, and the research gaps in each cluster are discussed in this review. This study helps reveal the current trend in SCS management research and suggest potential research directions for future study in SCS.
