The present study deals with the open-access Internet of Things (IoT) research in the global output for the span of ten years based on the Web of Science (WoS) core collection database, during the period 2011-2020. The main aims of the study are - a scientometric output of all open access internet of things (IoT) research, in respect of the growth of research output, relative growth rate and doubling time, year-wise distribution, language-wise distribution, country collaboration, most prolific authors, most prolific journals, most relevant authors keywords, conceptual structure map, and intellectual structure. The highest number of records published is 3700 in 2020 out of 10628 on open access IoT research, whereas the year 2011 is marked for holding the lowest position having only 18 records during the study period. In this study, among the top 20 authors, Zhang Y is in the top position by publishing 73 articles, getting citations 1143, h-index 13, g-index 33, and m-index 0. China is registered as the most productive country with 3092 world publications share. The majority of publication in open access IoT has been published in the form of IEEE Access in most relevant source with 2504 publications, total citation 24248, h-index 63, g-index 111, and m-index 7.875. This study indicates the relative growth rate and doubling time of open access IoT research across the globe irrespective of citation count, collaboration rate, and so on.
