• Abstract

    The primary objective of this study was to analyze the research progress made regarding the digitalization of  MSMEs via the Scopus data source. The research was addressed by bibliometric analysis through the visualization software packages Biblioshiny and VOSviewer. The study’s objective is to analyze the progress of research on digitalization on MSMEs. The survey results show that the digitalization of MSMEs experienced a positive growth trend from 2018-2023. The best contribution of this research is to emphasize both the authors and sources and relevant documents and explore the collaboration of digitalization research on MSME. A thorough review will benefit future researchers by helping them create a solid conceptual framework that provides an overview of research around the world.
