Abstract: This paper aims to map and analyze the main contributions of current researchers on agricultural derivatives through bibliometrics and sociometry techniques. Data for the analysis were collected from the Web of Science (WoS) core collection. The articles were searched using the terms “agricultural derivatives”, “options market”, “futures market” and “swaps market”. From the refinements adopted, 321 articles were used that make up the research sample. For data analysis, VOSviewer software was used. The results demonstrated a range of work by Chinese researchers on agricultural derivatives. It is evident that the search for agricultural derivatives is associated with the process of financing of production, price risk management and marketing mechanisms for agricultural products. We conclude that agricultural derivatives help producers in managing their business, making them safer. Of course, adopting risk management for companies is also essential, whether they are linked to agricultural production, trade, industry, distribution, financial or agribusiness institutions.
