Abstract

The number of research in sustainability development is increasing along with the importance of sustainability. This phenomenon inspires the authors to establish a survey research that delivers results in terms of environmental sustainability. The aim of this paper is to outline the research trend, define the literature categorization and research focuses of environmental sustainability engineering research from the perspective of historical evaluation based on the top five highest impact factor journals in the Journal Citation Report of the Institute of Scientific Information. Time horizon is used as the methodology to classify the research articles. This paper will reflect the evolution of research in the field of environmental sustainability by carrying out the comprehensive assessment of 29,616 research articles across a 24-year time span. The research in sustainability is growing rapidly and two research focuses appear at the highest count—water research and pollution control and prevention. Moreover, the Journal of Environmental Science and Technology has emerged as the journal with the highest sustainability research published over the years. The implication of the results in our study contributes to the direction of future research in the discipline of sustainability.
