Emergency management is the cornerstone of maintaining and realizing national security and public security. It is of great practical and theoretical significance to analyze and forecast the research of emergency management. This article takes 1753 pieces of emergency management literature included in the China Social Sciences Citation Index as the research object, uses CiteSpace visualization software to conduct keyword co-occurrence and cluster analysis on emergency management, sorts out the research hotspots, research emphases, evolutionary paths, and future trends of literature in this field, and constructs the knowledge map of emergency management research. The study found that the object, system, methods, and purpose of emergency management are the 4 major areas of research. Emergency occurrences, emergency response capacity, and emergency information platforms make up the three main topics of emergency management study. Initial investigation, development and strengthening, and in-depth study are the three significant stages of emergency management evolution. A resilient emergency management system under national governance, achieving the transformation of emergency management to normalized management, and promoting the precision and refinement of emergency management in the context of big data is the future research directions of emergency management in China which are highlighted as a result of these studies.
