Different articles on gender studies in tourism were retrieved using Scopus, one of the most popular databases. The research articles are considered between 2003 and 2022. Scopus analyzer is used to get analysis results such as documents by year, source, country, etc. VOSviewer Version 1.6.17 is used to analyse different units such as co-authorship, co-occurrences, citation analysis, etc. Statistical analysis and network analysis show the maximum number of articles published in 2020 and 2022, with the United States contributing the most significant number of documents. The results also show that the number of publications was minimal in the first ten years, and the growth was uneven. Still, in the following ten years, the number of published articles gradually increased, especially in 2019, when the number of publications increased significantly. Researchers from the USA, UK and Australia publish nearly 40% of all articles worldwide, ahead of 48 other countries and territories. At the same time, the top three most productive universities from each of the top 10 countries belong to the three countries mentioned above. Gender research in tourism has been studied at the initiative of scientists from democratically developed English-speaking countries and some Western countries, and it can be said that mass interest has only been awakened since the IV World Women's Conference held in 2019. Network analysis of different parameters indicates that there is a lot of scope to contribute to further research in terms of Women's Status, Empowerment and Sustainability.
