  • Kurban ÜNLÜÖNEN




Technology addiction, Tourist behavior, Bibliometric analysis, R-studio, VOSviewer


This study was conducted to analyze global research efficiency between 1991-2024 (26 April 2024) in the field of technology addiction and tourist behavior. Quantitative analysis of 2626 articles obtained from the Web of Science (WOS) database using the keywords technology addiction and tourist behavior was performed with R-studio software; network visualization results were obtained with VOSviewer. Bibliometric analysis was examined in two parts as performance analysis and bibliometric mapping. In the study, bibliometric mapping; conceptual structure analysis, intellectual structure analysis and social structure analysis. As a result of the study, the concept of technology addiction has started to be studied since 2015 and it was found that social media, social networks, covid-19, digital addiction, fear of missing-out and smartphone addiction keywords were found to be intensity. It has been seen that the US and China, where studies have been carried out in many countries, are among the most effective and most contributing countries. It was observed that there were more clusters in the form of two and three authors  in the co-authors network. This suggests that the research issue may be an indication of a multi-disciplined and high cooperation potential.
