While nature avails us with resources, we must use them without degrading nature per se. One of the perils that persistently plague the twenty-first century Man is global warming and climate change instigated as a result of the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) including methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, chloro-fluorocarbons and carbon dioxide; the last which is the major contributor to global warming emanates from many industrial and agricultural activities. Cleaner energy is pivotal to our continuous existence; hence world agencies and scientists are respectively promulgating and proposing methods and technologies wheeled towards the attainment of a low carbon universe. This paper quantitatively analyzes the volume of research outputs in this field using bibliometric methods. This analysis offers a comprehension of how low carbon emission as an environmental advance is progressively delved into globally, particularly amongst leading journals from Scimago. A bibliometric investigation was carried out on 47 documents published from 2011-2018 recovered from SCOPUS database with specific terms affiliated to Low Carbon Emission Studies. Results from analysis identified: the leading contributing authors and researchers; global distribution of research output; productive research institutions; leading publication outlets; funding sponsors; national contributions; and leading keywords affiliated to low carbon emission studies, with respect to the first three leading journals of 2017 extracted from Scimago. The publication trend shows exigency for a great deal of exploration with respect to low carbon emission in the leading journals used for the purpose of this study.

Keywords : Carbon; Carbon Capture; Climate Change; CO2 Reduction; Bibliometrics.
