In recent years, research on knowledge management has become a hot issue in academia and industry. From the research literature of existing scholars on knowledge management, although research in this field has yielded a large amount of important research results, however, there is a lack of quantitative literature review to summarize the current status and development of the field. Most studies lack in-depth and extensional research on the basis of predecessors. This paper uses the bibliometric method to conduct statistical analysis of the literature in the field of knowledge management research, perform visualized analysis of the content of knowledge management research with citespace software, aiming to further understand the development of knowledge management research through analysis of relevant literature, frontier hotspots and future trends. The results of the research show: knowledge management research enters explosive development stage; Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research will gradually become the direction of development in this field; the integration of knowledge management and big data will become future research trend.
