This study aims to determine the map of SFA research on Islamic economics and finance (IEF). SFA or Stochastic Frontier Approach is one method for parametric efficiency measurement. The data analyzed were in the form of publication of the SFA application research on IEF, totaling 109 articles. Map of the development of SFA field research is obtained through the export process into the .txt file format. The export data is then processed and analyzed using the VOSviewer application program to determine the SFA development’s bibliometric map in Islamic finance application research. The results showed that the number of publications on the study results on the SFA application in IEF from 2009-2019 had increased significantly and was the most published in the International Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Finance and Management. Network visualization shows that the map of the development of the SFA application research is divided into 4 clusters. Cluster 1 consists of 7 topics, cluster 2 consists of 4 topics, cluster 3 consists of 3 topics, and cluster 4 consists of 2 topics. Application in the Islamic banking industry with a cost efficiency approach is the most widely used. Meanwhile, the sfpanel model is the most frequently used in the SFA model.
