The current research aims to investigate the process of publishing resources related to metaverse in connection with telemedicine. The current research is of applied type and uses the Scientometric method. A descriptive review of the available resources with related keywords such as logistics, knowledge logistics, medical knowledge logistics, telemedicine and knowledge logistics in telemedicine was done in Google, Google Scholar, and SID databases to determine the relationship between the two concepts. The findings of this research showed that the sources of this area have a history of about two years. Ammar A, Fournier, Stephane, Muller, Olivier, and Skalidis, Ioannis are among the most used authors. India, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, UNAV, and the United States were among the busy countries. Also, most organizational affiliations were related to the University of Crete, Center Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Symbiosis International Deemed University, Symbiosis Institute of Digital and Telecom Management and CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY OF THE SACRED HEART. The analysis of the occurrence of keywords also showed that telemedicine, metaverses, virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and telerehabilitation were among the most frequent keywords. Reviewing the subject literature in this research showed that these two concepts are closely related. As far as it can be claimed that the metaverse is a general concept that can cover various aspects of human life and transform human interactions. This research can be the basis for conducting more studies regarding the connection between the medical field and the metaverse through telemedicine.
