The goal of this study is to investigate the domestic and international research trends on metaverse related researches. To achieve this goal, a set of 913 journal articles were collected from KCI (Korea Citation Index), 232 articles from WoS (Web of Science), and 277 articles from WoS-CPCI (Conference Proceeding Citation Index). A descriptive analysis shows the number of researches has been increased radically, and the mostly researched subject areas are interdisciplinary, computer science, and education in KCI, business and economics in WoS, and computer science in WoS-CPCI. The co-occurrence network analysis using author keywords revealed that technology related terms such as virtual reality and augmented reality showed high centrality measures in all of the databases, and the cluster analysis resulted in education and metaverse platform related keywords cluster from KCI, bibliometric analysis related keywords cluster from WoS, and all the metaverse technology related keywords cluster from WoS-CPCI.
