The use of the Internet by people with intellectual disabilities is an area of study that has captured the interest of scientists in recent years. The studies have focused on analyzing specific aspects such as usability, the activities carried out online, and Internet benefits and risks, among others. The reviews published on this matter have been of a narrative or systematic approach. The present study aimed to examine the academic output in the field of Internet and people with intellectual disability from a bibliometric perspective. A sample of 95 documents related to the topic was retrieved from the core collection of Web of Science (WoS) and analyzed using the bibliometrix R-Tool. Findings show a recent increase in publications related to the subject and confirm Price’s and Bradford’s laws. The most relevant sources on the topic are devoted to the research field of intellectual disability and Spain, the United Kingdom and Sweden stand out as the most productive countries. Studies tend to be published by co-authorship in journals indexed at the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) achieving a global impact. However, international scientific collaboration is still scarce. Further bibliometric analyses are recommended to build a complete panorama of the research field. View Full-Text
