Abstract

This article presents an analysis of the literature over the past decade in marine ecotourism research. Using data from 543 papers indexed in Scopus, we evaluated research impact and trends as well as connections between topics. Through bibliometric analysis, it is known how research trends related to marine ecotourism. The results showed that there was an increase in paper production to the highest peak in 2019, then decreased. Key themes such as "marine ecotourism" and "sustainable tourism" reflect the research focus on sustainability and environmental preservation. Connectedness analysis shows clusters that illustrate the central role of "ecotourism" in linking other topics, such as marine tourism and conservation. Theme analysis identifies basic themes that remain relevant, niche themes with a specific focus, themes that are emerging or declining, and motor themes that influence the development of marine ecotourism. Overall, this article provides in-depth insights into the evolution of marine ecotourism research, paving the way for further understanding of the inter-topic interactions and dynamics of research developments in marine ecotourism.
