Audience Response Systems (ARS) can be used to increase students' commitment and engagement. ARS are becoming popular at lectures, complementing traditional masterclasses and shedding light to a more profitability of the time. Several researchers studied the impact of ARS in the classroom. However, there is a lack of information about the current research landscape to identify paths towards the development of scientific research and projects in ARS field. This bibliometric study discusses a collection of bibliometric parameters on ARS literature that were calculated from data downloaded in Scopus database. A total of 2,015 publications were considered from Scopus database. Results showed that the number of publications is stable since 2010 with a noticeable decrease in 2019. The United States and the United Kingdom are the most productive countries with a total of 898 papers in the US and 179 in the UK. The most prolific author was Daniel Zingaro from the University of Toronto with a total of 10 manuscripts published. This study provides researchers who are interested in conducting research on ARS with insights on potential venues for publications and collaboration with research institutions and researchers that are more prolific in the field.
