Green building is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable, and useful to lower down the greenhouse gas emissions from buildings. This study aims to undertake a scientometric review of green building research in 2015-2019. A total of 644 articles from Web of Science core collection database were analysed. The most productive researchers as well as the research institutions and countries/regions active in green building research were identified. Hot research themes detected through keyword co-occurrence analysis and cluster analysis included: urban heat island, urban sustainability, cost performance of green buildings, green building technologies, rating tools, energy saving behaviour, occupant health and comfort, policies, multi-criteria decision-making techniques, green building performance and building information modelling for green building. The articles with high citations were also introduced in this study and showed the most recent trend of green building research.
