Based on the bibliometric and visualization methods, this paper related to information behavior research analyzes 2093 journal papers included in CNKI and WOS in the field of information behavior research, from 2010 to 2019.The hot domains, research fronts and the knowledge base are investigated respectively by means of knowledge mapping generated by visualization software. Conclusions at home and abroad for the past ten years are as flows. Firstly, investigations reveal that user demand, technology, network, retrieval, and medical health information have been the five research hot domains in IBR. Secondly, investigations reveal that medicine, informatics, virtual community of network, semantic information retrieval have been research fronts in IBR. Thirdly, the knowledge base collection of information behavior for the past ten years includes high yield author and representative works which have a significant impact.
