Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions are considered as a common and unified system to capture information organizational wide, and we have seen that many organizations acquire and implement ERP to improve their operational performance and create strategic value. The goal of this study is to gain a better understanding of the number of citations of ERP related research in the past. Our method of analysis can be divided into two main steps. This study used 81 journals as data sources for the analysis of the number of citations of ERP articles. The time span of this study was from January 1997 to May 2012. We selected articles by using the Web of Science (WOS) database system, which resulted in a total of 674 records. We listed the 15 most frequently cited articles and the number of citations, the ranking of the articles, where they were published, the key words, the distribution of the academic institutions and the geographical location, for each 15 article. We also analyzed the ranking of journals and the ranking of scholars based on the number of published ERP articles. Future research directions and contributions to theory are provided.
