Records of search queries can often be exported from scientific databases, most of them contain the record of citations, as well. However, it is ineffective to register the citation relationships among publications manually, so the reader might lean on the number of citations when looking for leading publications. One can be interested in trend-setting publications or the primary columns of the discipline in terms of publications. Beneath the conventional literature reviews, helpful solutions are available to assist the reader in similar questions. Network visualizations in bibliographic analyses have long-established practices, offering appealing tools to visualize complex connection systems constituted by different bibliometric couplings. The current paper investigates the direct citation network of a sample drawn from the Web of Science scientific database in the relation of a particular research field concerning road induced vibrations from a packaging testing perspective. The sample consists of 46 publications embracing 28 years as of date. Core publications are identified first, supplemented by qualitative contextual reviews, followed by main path analysis. The assays attempt to estimate the main research topics of the investigated discipline by the given sample.
