In recent years, research in the field of psychology has shifted its focus from diseases and dysfunctions in individuals to exploring the potential for development and strengths of people, largely influenced by the principles of positive psychology. Consequently, it can be asserted that studies in the field of psychology are advancing within a positive paradigm. Under the influence of positive psychology, a noticeable shift from early maladaptive schemas to positive schemas has emerged in research, which has garnered attention in the relevant literature. Thus, the primary aim of this study was to conduct a bibliometric analysis of research on positive schemas. To achieve this objective, we examined 2135 publications related to positive schemas in the Web of Science (WoS) database. The data obtained from this examination were systematically coded and transferred to a computerized environment. The analysis of this data was carried out through bibliometric methods. The results of this analysis shed light on the current research trends pertaining to positive schemas.
