Abstract
Scholars from different countries and backgrounds have been discussing Hakka in Hakka Studies or Hakkaology. Their research covers a broader area from medicine to cultural studies, even involving trans and multidisciplinary studies. However, there is a lack of studies that map Hakka-related research. What is the trend of research on Hakka? This study surveyed Hakka-related research articles in three databases (Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Scopus) from 2000 to 2022 and found a positive trend of Hakka-related research in quantitative (number of research) and qualitative (various topics of research) ways. This study also finds that topics related to culture and linguistics dominate the research on Hakka, while the study on health and genetics is also increasing. The study also finds an opportunity to explore and expand research areas in Hakka studies, including economics, business, politics, and international relations. The Consortium of Global Hakka Studies is essential to explore this opportunity, and Taiwan can play a critical role as a center and hub for global Hakka studies.
