The bibliometric analysis method was used to evaluate the articles both qualitatively and quantitatively and to visualize the data. “Web of Science Core Collection” database and the VOSviewer program were used to obtain and analyze the data. Distribution of studies by year, author country institution analysis, journal and author citation analysis, journal and author co-citation analysis, and keyword analysis was carried out. Two hundred authors representing 45 countries and 200 institutions contributed to a total of 285 studies on smoking cessation published in 84 journals between 2003 and 2023. While Journal of Addictions Nursing was determined as the journal in which the largest number of articles were published, Research in Nursing and Health was determined as the most cited journal. The top three countries that provide the most support for published articles are the United States, Australia, and Canada. The five most frequently used keywords in the published studies were “smoking cessation,” “smoking,” “pregnancy,” “nurses/nursing,” and “tobacco.” The results of this bibliometric analysis showed that the researchers have had an increasing interest in smoking cessation in the nursing field over the past 20 years. It is recommended to focus on less-studied topics in studies to be planned on smoking in the field of nursing.
