The current study aimed to (i) creates a bibliometric map of studies conducted on giftedness and mathematics and covered in the Scopus database and (ii) provide a holistic examination of these studies. Analyses included 1088 studies published between 1917 and 2022. We used the VOS viewer for social network visualisations. Using the bibliometric analysis method, we examined the studies regarding the most productive journals, country of origin, citations, and keywords. We found that the number of studies has increased within the last two decades. The outcomes of this research will benefit researchers who study the subject by holistically showing the field.
