Continuous monitoring, in organizational contexts, uses technological tools and methods, including information systems, with the objective of providing evidence which allows to evaluate, in run-time, the state of execution of business processes, contributing to the continuous assurance of organizational processes. Despite the proven benefits of using information systems with features that provide continuous assurance, there is a slow growth of research in this area. Considering that continuous monitoring is one of the crucial elements of continuous assurance, this study presents the result of a bibliometric analysis on continuous monitoring in order to determine if one of the potential causes of the slow growth of research on continuous assurance is the lack of research on continuous monitoring. The results demonstrate that research on continuous monitoring is scarce and therefore may be one of the causes of the slow growth of research on continuous assurance.
