Based on 4158 articles from 9 financial journals during 2009-2013 from Web of Science, we use CiteSpace III to construct the knowledge mapping of finance studies. As a result, the primary research power distribution is shown. Further, finance research hotspots and major research fields are revealed via keywords co-occurrence analysis and references co-citation analysis. The findings show that the United States plays a leading role in the research of finance. There are four major research fields: asset pricing, corporate finance, financial intermediation and investor behavior. The findings will contribute to following the international research frontier and catching research trends.
