Conduct disorder is one of the most common behavioural disorders among children and adolescents. Since the prevalence rate of the disorder is increasing swiftly, research to understand different parameters related to conduct disorder is also mounting. The present study is aimed to identify the research trends in the field of conduct disorder using bibliometric analysis. For this purpose, SCOPUS database was explored, wherein a total of 1199 documents related to conduct disorder were identified. The different aspects of the obtained data were analysed such as year-wise, journal-wise, author-wise, institute-wise, and country-wise number of publications using normative bibliometric technique. VOSviewer software was used to find out the collaboration of countries on conduct disorder research and co-occurrence of authors key words which highlighted the research trends in the area of conduct disorder. The findings of the study revealed that most of the research studies have been conducted on the co-morbidity of conduct disorder with other disorders; risk factors related to conduct disorder; key behavioural tendencies of person having conduct disorder i.e., aggression, impulsivity, antisocial-behaviour, psychopathic traits and violence; relation of conduct problems with callous-unemotional traits; role of cortisol and amygdala in conduct disorder. The study also identified areas pertaining to conduct disorder which need considerable attention but have been less focused by researchers.
