ABSTRACT

In this paper, we examined the research trends and characteristics related to the metaverse in global journals published between 2000 and 2022 from the Web of Science database. The analysis included descriptive statistics, multidimensional scaling, keyword network analysis, and visualization. In addition, semantic network models were constructed, and centrality (betweenness and degree) analysis was performed using R and KH coder in two separate categories based on the trends and aspects of the publication: analysis period 1 (Jan 2000 to Dec 2020) and period 2 (Jan 2021 to Jun 2022). The results showed that the recent global research trends related to the metaverse could be quantitatively characterized using the semantic network analysis. Also, the results could be applied to suggest future research topics in the field of metaverse based on quantitative and empirical data.
