We also include future research direction for each emerged research cluster. Originality/value – This study is the first attempt of a citation analysis on the cultural intelligence research; The first integrated and synthesised use of three different citation tools to achieve objective and scientific results as close as possible; The first attempt of essentially unpacking the "DNA" of Cultural Intelligence.
