Bibliometric Analysis of Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is a technique of raising money from a large number of people or organization to sponsor a new project. This article presents a bibliometric study on crowdfunding that was conducted using the VOSviewer 1.6.18 to assess worldwide research trends, especially publication growth, publishing outputs by country, themes of interest, and co-occurrences of author keywords. Bibliometric is a new research that has grown into a well-established aspect of information research and a quantitative approach to document description. The Scopus database was used to obtain 839 papers published between 2011 and 2022. The statistics indicate an increasing trend in terms of publishing outputs. Most of the papers came from scholars in the United States, followed by Germany and the United Kingdom. The keyword 'entrepreneurial finance' appears the most frequently in articles, followed by 'equity crowdfunding.' A closer check into author keyword co-occurrences found that 'entrepreneurial finance' had 165 links. It can be stated that the findings of the analysis could be used by future scholars to investigate under-researched areas of waqf crowdfunding.
