This scoping review aims to examine the range and extent of available research relating to online gambling and responsible gambling, and to identify whether it is necessary to undertake a full systematic review in this area. Utilising bibliometric data analysis with the software tool VOSviewer (van Eck and Waltman, 2010), this scoping review explores themes associated with online gambling and responsible gambling in two well-established databases: Scopus and Web of Science. Several main fields of research are identified (i.e., Gambling issues and Studies, Clinical Psychology) and numerous key terms are extracted (i.e., gambling behaviour, gambling-related harms, policy and responsible gambling tools) from the bibliometric analysis. Based on the findings of this scoping review and the absence of terms relating to transparency practices in online responsible gambling, there is a need to conduct a full systematic literature review. This literature review will aim to establish what constitutes best practices in responsible gambling driven transparency in games and promotional material.
