This report is based on the original data of 16400 articles from the “ISI Web of Science” database (including SCI-E、SSCI), using the term “Military Psychology” as their topics. Timespan is between 2004 to 2013. Data were downloaded on August 12st, 2013. Using the Knowledge Mapping software CitespaceⅢ, we described the framework and development of international military psychology, filtering only high-impact journals, authors and articles, and then depicted hot issues and trends across different periods in military psychology researches. Results of the scientific knowledge mapping showed that military psychology highlights the roles of clinical psychology and combat operations. Among those subdivisions, researches in operational performance, battle-field decision-making, combat stress prevention, post-traumatic stress disorder and mental health of veterans are shaping what military psychology will look like in the near future.
