Abstract: In this paper, based on the citation database of CNKI in recent five years, we use bibliometric methods to statistically analyze literatures in 26 typical domestic journals in the field of resources science. The distributions of top 10 institutions, journals, major funds, and subjects in the field of resources science were obtained, and top 15 high frequency keywords were sorted. The main statistical results are as follows: The top three institutions with resources science research papers cited are Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, CAS, Shaanxi Normal University and Information Center of Ministry of Land and Resources of People’s Republic of China. The main journals are Journal of Natural Resources, Resources Science and China Population, Resources and Environment. The main funds are the National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Program on Key Basic Research Project (“973” Program) and Knowledge Innovation Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The top three fields are agricultural economy, environmental science and resource utilization and macro economic management and sustainable development. The main research contents are land and resources, geographic information system (GIS) and land use. The results show the current research situation of resources science in China.
