Tourism and Internet of Things: A Bibliometric Analysis of Scientific Production from the Scopus Database Chapter Conference Paper uri icon


  • Tourism is a very emerging sector in any society, very important in econom-ic terms and in job creation, today any traveler increasingly uses technologi-cal means to fully enjoy their trip. The IoT is and increasingly will be a major contributor to smart tourism. To identify the most developed terms in the field of Tourism and Internet of Things, a quantitative analysis was developed in May 2022. This analysis was focused on four hundred and four (404) publications from the Scopus database, published between 2011 and May 4 2022. Before 2011 there were no publications in this area. A bibliometric analysis was performed using the VOSviewer software and a technique of matching terms and co-authorship by authors and countries. Were found 4 clusters for the co-occurrence of terms, 18 clusters for the co-authorship of authors and 6 clusters for the co-authorship of countries. There was a lack of uniformity in the presentation of terms with the same meaning: internet of things, internet of things (iot), iot and internet of thing (iot). This lack of uniformity is probably due to the fact that it is a recent ar-ea of investigation.
