Remote working is an important concept rapidly gaining popularity among today’s working styles, making it possible to work from almost anywhere. Remote working has become the “new normal” with the 2020 pandemic and quarantine processes, and the spread of the internet and technological tools in workplaces has been very effective at this point. The spread of remote working has brought different perspectives on the subject and brought the need to examine emerging problems in detail to the agenda of academic studies. In this context, the study aims to examine the publications on “remote work” to understand the transformation of the field. In order to carry out a detailed examination, the keywords “remote work” and “remote working” were extracted from the Web of Science (WoS) database based on bibliometric and network analysis techniques. As a result of the scanning, a total of 960 studies published between 1982 and 2023 were reached, and various analyses were carried out. The obtained data were visualized with VOSviewer and R programs, which are analysis and visual mapping programs. By examining 960 studies with bibliometric analysis, a pioneer in remote working researchers and countries could be identified. By examining 960 studies with bibliometric analysis, researchers and countries that were pioneers in the concept of remote working were determined, and it was seen that the studies showed diversity and interaction. Finally, it is thought that the gaps in the field will be determined with the data and findings obtained and will guide other researchers.
