This paper describes current trends in scientific research on Smart Specialisation by answering the following questions: 1) How many scientific publications on Smart Specialisation have been produced since this concept emerged and what are their characteristics in terms of type and influence?; 2) How large is the community of researchers, organisations and countries working in this field?; 3) What is their influence and productivity?; 4) What are the main regional knowledge hubs and the key knowledge producers?; and 5) What are the highly-cited knowledge objects published by the research community? The answers are sourced from a bibliometric analysis of the scientific publications produced during the first 12 years of research on Smart Specialisation.
