The economic growth and social responsibility of the company have become hot topics of concern to society. Fulfilling a company’s obligations of social responsibility can establish a good corporate image and benefit the company’s long-term development. Tracking the research fronts in this field can help to understand the hotspots that scholars pay attention to and fill the gaps in the field. We used the scientometric analysis to explore corporate governance research from 1987 to 2020 based on the Web of Science (WoS) database. Our research shows that corporate social responsibility focus on topics such as sustainability, social responsibility, and shareholders, and financial performance will be more skewed towards financial crisis, company value, and other research. The main publications are the Journal of Business Ethics and Corporate Governance-An International Review. The increase in the number of publications and citations reflects the strong interest of scholars in this research area. In this area, the organizations of developed countries are dominant, especially the United States, and China has the largest number of funding agencies, suggests that the economic powers are paying more attention to the literature on economic management. However, corporate social performance articles are relatively small, and strengthening this area can become a future research direction. strengthening this area can become a future research direction.
