Data Processing Using Bibliometric Method through Bibliographic Information from Scopus for the Topic of Supply Chain Financing. The research adopts a quantitative approach. This quantitative approach is utilized to analyze journals or articles published from 2000 to 2022. Meanwhile, the mapping system uses VOS viewer and biblioshiny. Through this bibliometric analysis, data and visualization of research data trends are obtained. The process consists of four steps: (1) defining search keywords; (2) initializing search results; (3) refining search results; and (4) compiling initial statistical data and analyzing the data. The research findings are expected to provide a stronger roadmap for further research in this field. By utilizing bibliometric analysis, the following data and visualization of research trends are obtained: (1) SCF research within the timeframe of 2000 – 2020 experienced a significant increase starting from the year 2018; (2) Yan N is the most effective author in this topic; (3) China is the country that contributes the most to this research topic; (4) The International Journal of Supply Chain Management is the journal that publishes the most articles on the SCF theme.
