The purpose of this study is to consider the importance role of operational and financial variables and also extract these variables in four-echelon supply chain network in a systematic mode. In addition, this study explores the direct and indirect relations of variables, clustering concepts, making co-occurrence networks and calculating micro and macro indices of Scientometrics using co-occurrence analyses. The methodology of the research is content analysis and Scientometrics. Data were collected from four databases (science direct, emerald, wiley, SID) between 2013-2016. Data analyzes were done by Excel, VosViewer and Nodexl. The results of the content analysis extract 106 variables that the most frequent variables were demand, profit and price. In addition, co-occurrence analysis of operational and financial variables shows high Solidarity of the network (more than 80 percent density) that the result confirms the goodness clustering of the variables. Regards to this study, researchers and practitioners can use and employ the results in difference modeling (like: mathematical modeling, structural equation model, …).
