– Research on self-healing concrete has thrived in recent years. This study aims to map the evolution of self-healing concrete among the different research constituents, reveal the trends, and identify the key contributors, research themes, and critical publication outlets and topics in the field. Bibliometrix R software package was utilized to conduct a bibliometric analysis on a total of 1,402 publications written by 2,880 authors and published between 1974 to 2021. These publications were retrieved from the Scopus database. Performance analysis revealed that 86% of the publications were journal articles and papers published in conference proceedings. Citations and keywords analysis showed that review articles were the most cited papers, and research on utilizing bacteria in self-healing concrete was the most trending topic. High collaboration rates among top-cited and most productive countries, authors, and universities were reported using science mapping. The findings of this study highlight the need for future work focused on real-life applications, optimization of self-healing mechanisms, rheological properties, and microstructure characteristics of self-healing concrete.
