A survey of journal articles on neural network business applications published between 1988 and 1995 indicates that an increasing amount of neural network research is being conducted for a diverse range of business activities. The classification of literature by (1) year of publication, (2) application area, (3) problem domain, (4) decision process phase, (5) level of management, (6) level of task interdependence, (7) means of development, (8) corporate/academic interaction in development, (9) technology integration, (10) comparative study, (11) major contribution, and (12) journal provides some insights into the trends in neural networks research. The implications for neural networks developers/researchers and suggestions on future research areas are discussed. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
