Scientific production on duality in vocational training has grown in parallel to the increased presence of this concept in the global discourse. However, there are hardly any studies that contribute to a general overview of this field of research that would facilitate access to knowledge. Therefore, the main objective of this research is to provide a detailed and international picture of Dual Vocational Education and Training (DVET). To this end, a systematic literature review was carried out in Web of Science (WoS), yielding a total of seventy-three papers which were subjected to bibliometric analysis. The main findings show that this is a fragmented research area despite the recent and intense growth of its production. It also highlights an intensive international collaboration between authors and institutions. Finally, the need to continue with this field of study is underlined, while future lines of research are highlighted.
