Rural broadcasting is an important tool for providing development-focused messages to rural populations. Research on this topic is necessary for creating informed proposals for rural broadcasting legislation. According to a bibliometric study by Evangelos M. Pallis of Hellenic Mediterranean University, the most common sources of research on rural broadcasting are M/C Journal, IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting, and Media Culture & Society Journal. The most frequently cited phrase in the titles of these studies is "UHF," although it appears only four times. Research on rural broadcasting is most common in China, Thailand, and Nigeria, as indicated by the appearance of these countries in the titles of research studies. According to a word cloud analysis, the most common terms in the titles of these studies are "rural broadcasting" and "radio." These terms appear 62 times in total. Recent research on rural broadcasting has covered a range of topics, including radio, digital, and TV. The most common focus of research in this field is TV.
