The purpose of this paper is to put focus on the current trends in the area of skyline computation which is a computational trend related to database research community and also to highlight the further research directions in the same. In recent years, the skyline queries or skyline computations have been used in many advanced applications such as location based queries originated from the mobile phones. Although the concept of skyline computation originated from centralized database environment, as the application needs grew, the concept has been applied successfully to modern computational environments like distributed networks, real time systems, mobile ad hoc networks etc. This paper aims at unfolding the various recent methodologies used till now, for the skyline computation and then highlights the future research directions in this area.
