Trap–neuter–return and its variants (TNR) aims to control unowned cat populations. Papers on TNR are a prime example of how a literature grows, papers become influential, and citation networks form, influencing future study and public perceptions. We analyzed 145 TNR studies published in 2002–2019, identifying papers considered influential because of high overall citations, high average citations/year, or frequent mentions in social media. Open Access papers were more influential in social media, raising greater public awareness than studies published in subscription journals. While divergent views exist, network analysis of the TNR literature indicated the potential for forming self-reinforcing groups of authors. While diverse views are expressed, there is a risk of reduced dialogue among groups, potentially constraining debate to refine arguments, share information, or plan research. View this paper.
