Abstract

Digital Twins, as a suite of technologies is progressively developing significant momentum in several fields of study. Various research works have been conducted outlining the concept, the underlying technologies, general and context-specific architectures, and applications. This study has been undertaken to identify relevant research areas, key authors, publishers, and geographical distribution of publications on digital twins through a systematic review and bibliometric analysis, to inform the trajectories of future research in the field. A keyword-based search for journals was first conducted in Web of Science Core Collection to obtain documents relevant for this study, and a systematic review was performed in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. A bibliometric analysis was then performed on the extracted data using the VOSviewer software. The Tableau software and Microsoft Excel were also used to analyse and visualise some of insights derived from the analysis.
