In recent years, the construction of Chinese Borderland Studies has entered a climax period. In order to provide more references for the development of this discipline, this paper sorts out the relevant literature collected in CNKI database, and makes a quantitative analysis of its time, author, institution, keywords and other information by using software such as EndNote and VOSviewer. The results are as follows: first, after a period of slow growth and fluctuation, the number of papers on frontier studies in China has entered a period of rapid development. Second, there are many authors involved in many disciplines and research fields, and the degree of cooperation among scholars is not high. In addition, most of these authors are concentrated in a few institutions. Third, most of the literatures on the related topics of Chinese Borderland Studies focus on the construction of the subject, but there are obvious defects in the construction of the subject, such as the research on the present situation of the borderland, the research on the coastal areas, the theoretical innovation and the insufficient understanding of foreign theories. In addition, this paper summarizes the development path of Chinese Borderland Studies and looks forward to its future.
