Abstract: In this paper, the current status of research on TCM literature informationization was revealed, and the related research hot issues, current problems and developing trends were also analyzed. The authors would provide data basis and scientific proof for future study. CNKI library was used as a source to retrieve literatures(from 2005 to 2014) for research of TCM literature informationization. The following six aspects, including the annual change of documentation quantity, supporting funds, published journals, research institutions, leading researchers, and research contents were analyzed through bibliometric methods. This field was concerned by more and more researchers, and was largely supported by funds. The papers were mainly published in the Chinese Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Pharmacy, Modernization of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Materia Medica- World Science & Technology, Chinese Journal of Information on Traditional Chinese Medicine, etc. The research institutions mainly included Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, and other institutions. In recent ten years, the researchers were focused on data mining, TCM syndrome, drug laws and literature study, etc. The total documentation quantity increased, but the scientific power was not distributed evenly. The foundation for ancient literature research was weak, and related method and technology were not mature. Evaluation and service of the literatures information source was still in the initial stage. The analysis and evaluation of methodology in multidisciplinary fields is very meaningful for the improvement of TCM literature informationization.
