Abstract—Coastal areas have very important roles and benefits. Unfortunately, most of them in the world are experiencing the effects of climatic changes such as rising sea levels, increasing coastal erosion, and marine intrusion. Meanwhile, there have been many studies on coastal vulnerability from various aspects and perspectives. Therefore, it is necessary to study the trend on coastal vulnerability from past historical records of several decades ago and also from the aspects that have not been studied. This study aims to identify gaps and opportunities related to coastal vulnerability to provide solutions to sustainability themes in the future. Also, there is a need for this study since it is not monotonous and contains a novel element. The method used in this review article is Web of Science (WoS) as the database source, while VOSviewer is used to visualize and analyze the Bibliometric maps. WoS is a website that provides subscription-based access to multiple databases that provide comprehensive citation data for many different academic disciplines, while VOSviewer is a software tool for constructing and visualizing bibliometric networks. The analysis shows that for over 20 years, topics related to coastal vulnerability around the world are divided into four categories, each of which shows the most frequently occurring themes, namely climate change, coastal vulnerability, sea level, and vulnerability. Subsequently, there is a gap in coastal vulnerability, which is a topic on climate change that has been rarely studied in Indonesia since 2015. This bibliometric approach is used to identify key themes in each study or scope of knowledge that has been conducted so far, which is beneficialin determining novel future research.

Index Terms—Web of science, VOSviewer, coastal sustainability.
