Noerlina, Tirta Nugraha Mursitama, Brilly Andro Makalew



ICT, Corruption, Across continents, Corruption prevention, Technology, Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, America



This work aims to describe the effort of corruption prevention across global countries. We analyzed over seven significant publishers with a total of 126 keywords to find the most suitable publishers and the best keywords for our research. After determining the keyword and publisher, we analyzed 101 records of journal articles in Taylor and Francis publisher. We analyze all the aspects, including meta-data for each record, topic of research, object of research, and we also added consideration of ICT aspect inclusion in each record. Our findings suggest that: (1) there are more research in Africa and Europe compared to the rest of the world; (2) corruption prevention effort mentioning ICT has increased 4.5 times in the time period of 2016-2018 compared to 2013-2015; (3) there are more research focusing in practicability and less in basic research in the time period of 2016-2018 compared to 2013-2015. We are hoping that this research can be used as a baseline in the future multi-continent studies.
