This paper visualizes the landscape of groundwater research in Jakarta Basin. We used bibliometric analysis using scientific databases: Google Scholar, Crossref, and Scopus for literature search. The resulting list of papers from 1960s to 2014 (246 papers) then filtered based on: relevancy and pdf availability to get 69 papers. The filtered list was fed into open sources applications: Vosviewer and Zotero with PaperMachine plug-in. We built a work cloud and cluster diagram to classify the papers based on the keywords and to see the connection between paper.

We find the topic of the paper moves from groundwater mapping towards more sustainability and floods, from quantity perspective to papers with more quality sense. Based on the topic modeling, more research should be addressed to unravel the interactions between groundwater and river (or surface) water. More models should also be made to visualize how far groundwater supply could influence the socioeconomic state of the citizen. The use of open data on family and health survey such as IFLS and DHS would be more advised.

The following paper gives an illustration that a brief bibliometric analysis could assist a researcher to determine our research path. It gives us a glimpse of research landscape in Jakarta area.

Keywords: groundwater-surface water interaction, bibliometric, literature review

Topic: Renewable Energies
