The Internet and finance are accelerating into integration in the 21st Century. Internet Finance was firstly proposed by Ma Weihua, the former president of China Merchants Bank in July 2012. On the basis of 74 latest research literatures selected from CSSCI Journals, Chinese Core Journals, authoritative magazines and related newspapers, this paper summarizes the current domestic research progress and trend about Internet Finance according to three dimensions, such as the sources of journals, research subjects and research contents. This research shows that the current domestic researches are not only shallow and superficial, but also lack the theoretical analyses and model applications; and the wealth-based and bank-based Internet Finance will be the research focus in the future.
