Knowledge Distribution on Smart City Research: An Overview of Systematic Literature Reviews
Keywords:Smart Cities, Systematic Literature Review, PRISMA, Bibliometric, Urban Growth
The proliferation of smart cities around the globe has attracted research communities in academic debates. As a fast-growing research subject, huge amounts of studies are available in documenting smart cities. While literatures provide many review papers synthesizing knowledge from empirical and case studies, systematic review dedicated for review papers is still rare. This paper aims to fill this gap by identifying knowledge distribution in smart city scholarships drawing from review papers including systematic literature reviews, bibliometric and scientometric. To achieve the objective, a Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) protocol was conducted filtering 86 review papers to 16 final selected papers. The underlying concepts and knowledge distributions of smart city research such as research focus and scientific domains were summarized. This present study identifies research lacunae in smart city research thus future research agenda is proposed accordingly.
