This study aimed to determine the mapping of research in sharia economics and finance from 2010 to 2021 with scientometrics analysis to see the dynamics of research in the field of Islamic economics conducted by Indonesian and Malaysian researchers. Data were retrieved from the Scopus database. The analysis process was conducted using only the Vosviewer software version 1.6.16 to analyze and visualize co-authorship, co-occurrence, and co-citation. This research used separate keywords such as "Sharia Economics", "Islamic Bank", "Zakat and Waqf", "Islamic Finance", "Halal Industry", and "Sharia Fintech". This research found 2435 articles, 449 authors, and 471 topics related to sharia economics and finance. Malaysia's three most productive writers are Rusni Hassan, Adam Abdullah, and Saaidah Mohamad.Meanwhile, the three most productive authors from Indonesia are Raditya Sukmana, Dwi Suhartanto, and Aam Slamet Rusydiana. Islamic banking is the topic that dominated research in Indonesia and Malaysia in 2010-2021. Topics still not widely researched are among the 6 keywords used, namely "sharia economics" and "Fintech". From the co-citation analysis, there were 953 references used in research in the Islamic economics and finance field in Indonesia and Malaysia from 2010-2021. Topics dominated are references from research and sources with the theme of Islamic banks. From this research, it is hoped that researchers in Islamic economics and finance can increase research collaboration and conduct more research on topics that are still not widely studied. Future research can explore more deeply the dynamics of research in the field of Islamic economics and finance in various countries from time to time.
