Therefore Peugeh has been working with the purpose of analyzing bilibiometric researches published on the Web of Science Web site on the topic of distribution of tourism from the beginning to the present and drawing the world's scientific map (over the past 35 years). This research is a bibliometric study and 142 scientific sources on the topic of the distribution of tourism channels from the Web of Science Web site were subject to bimetric analysis. Data analysis was performed by the facilities of this site as well as the VOS viewer software, a visualization software. The retrieved sources covered scientific outputs from 1983 to 2018. The results of this study indicate the upward trend in the publication of articles in the field of distribution channels in the last 10 years. Most articles in 2018, 26 articles, and the highest citations in 2018 were 212 citations. Most of the publications in this field were original articles (55.63%) and from the countries of China, then Spain, the United States, New Zealand and Taiwan. The compilation of a network of journals in the field of tourism distribution channels was displayed in 3 clusters with a total of 275 joint authorizations.
