The aim of this study is to analyse the latest streams in finance research using bibliographic mapping in order to identify the most relevant topics, journals, universities and countries, and to visualise the interrelations among them. For this purpose, a bibliometric mapping of the publications indexed in WoS and Scopus was conducted using WOSviewer software. During the search process, a set of 7455 references for the recent period 2017-2018 were obtained, of which a total of 3000 of the most frequently cited were analysed. Based on the co-occurrence frequencies of key terms, our term map provides a visual representation of the latest research in finance and, more specifically, of the organisation around seven main clusters, namely Core Finance, Financing and Environmental Finance, Finance Networks, Financial Crisis and Financing Issues, Financial Development, Public and Social Finances, and Financial Literacy. In our opinion, this study contributes to the literature on bibliometric research. Findings may be useful for scholars, researchers and journal editors in the field of finance.
