Several programs have been designed for such purpose worldwide. The competitiveness of nations assesses innovation status among different countries as well. However, no study aims to analyze the recent research trends in creativity academic journal since 2000; therefore, this study analyzed three major creativity journals from 2000 to 2011 using the content analysis. This study employed Mayer (1999)’s approach, and integrated the Runco (2004)’s research topics for coding foundation. The uniqueness of this study was to provide the research trend from 760 creativity research literature in the past 11 years, and directions for future development. Results showed that the first three research approaches adopted were psychometric, experimental and contextual approach respectively. As for research topics, most of the articles elaborated on cognitive process, and then on personality. After 2006, however, the topics of personality shifted to education. The participants were mainly from higher education stage but rarely from preschool or retirees. Regarding international comparisons, the USA was the major output country. The rank of publish number in different countries was correlated with the rank of the innovation scores in the Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) of World Economic Forum (WEF). More journals and further investigations are needed for future studies. And also develop the creativity research area in different methodology and cultural system.
