Abstract: Based on literature analysis, the evolution patterns and influences of Wuli-Shili-Renli (WSR) system approach are investigated. Selecting Web of Knowledge, CNKI and Google Scholar as data sources, the literature on WSR system approach from 1995 to 2018 is retrieved, and the main stages of WSR system approach are divided. Through complex network and dynamic topic model, the literature of WSR system approach is analyzed, and the main authors and departments, and the evolution tendency of WSR system approach are explored. Through the countries and fields information analysis of literature, the influences of WSR system approach to system science and engineering of China are evaluated. The results shows: WSR system approach has promoted the development of system science and engineering of China, and improved its international influence; WSR system approach has evolved from theoretical exploration to practical application; WSR system approach has been widely used in systems evaluation and emergency management etc., and the research tendency presents diversity.

Key words: WSR system approach, literature analysis, evolutionary, complex network, dynamic topic model
