This dissertation explores the diffusion of DSGE approach in scientific journals between 1990 and 2016. For this it uses many different bibliometric techniques to help it to obtain relevant information form the great amount of publications produced by economists. First, it presents a brief history of the DSGE approach and, then, a summary of the current literature about the combination between history of economic thought and bibliometrics. The bibliometric analyses carried out here are from two types: descriptive and net-working analysis (bibliographic coupling and co-citation). The results of descriptive analyses answer questions such as: What is the variation of the number of articles published on the DSGE approach over time? What are its most cited articles? Which journals have most published articles on DSGE? Who are the authors who publish the most on this topic? From which country they are? And from which institution? The results of net-working analyses, in addition to highlighting the impact of the 2008 crisis on the DSGE approach, reveal the main research lines of this approach.
