Abstract: In this paper, the first inclusive scientometric review of global green building research (GGBR) is presented. The aim of this review study is to systematically analyze and visualize the state-of-the-art of the GGBR. To this end, a quantitative method – science mapping – was employed to analyze 6867 related bibliographic records retrieved from Scopus. The research findings are instructive in identifying and understanding trends and patterns, including core research areas, journals, institutions, and countries, and how these are linked, within the existing body of literature on green building (GB). They also assist in recognizing the gaps and deficiencies in the current GGBR and thus useful and promising directions for future research. This research has implications for journal editors, practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and research institutions, e.g., universities. It can help these stakeholders make vital contributions to developing and accruing intellectual wealth to the GB area, while providing them with a detailed understanding of the trend and status quo of the GGBR.
