This work aims to identify the main areas of study in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) research. Using bibliometric analysis, this study evaluated 955 published documents retrieved from the Scopus database to find a review structure of research on GRI with sustainability topics from 1999 to 2020 using Harzing's VOSviewer and Publish or Perish bibliometric package. This work examined the most effective journals, authors, countries, institutions, subject area, keywords, citation, co-authorship, co-citation, bibliographic coupling, and co-occurrence networks. Additionally, this work demonstrated the intellectual structure of the research and the perceived obstacles to the growth of the literature. The results show that in the last 20 years the trend of publications has been increasing. This study provides a comprehensive understanding and publication trends from previous studies and suggests that there will be a much larger number of articles in this field over the next decade.
