Methods From the Chinese biomedical literature database (CBM) from 1900 to 2015, the TCM literature linked to KOA was searched out, from which the author information was extracted using regular expressions, prolific authors were screened out using Price Law, academic teams were found using UCInet software. Then, important academic teams screened out according to H index were visualized using Netdraw software to find out their main members from whom the chief members’ academic ideas on KOA were explored and summarized. Results A total of 7 375 authors with 3 932 TCM papers on KOA were included, 86 prolific authors belonging to nine academic teams, and five teams were important— LIU Xianxiang Team, ZHAO Wenhai Team, LIU Deyu Team, WEN Jianmin Team and FAN Yueguang Team.
