Firstly, the authors search scientific studies indexed by Scopus database from 2000 to 2019 in the domain of customer loyalty. The document search was conducted in the following areas: the article title, abstract and keywords. Herewith, the combinations of keywords included: bank and customer; bank and loyalty, bank reputation and loyalty; bank confidence and loyalty; bank trust and loyalty; bank and customer; bank and communication strategy. With the irrelevant documents excepted and the duplicate ones eliminated, the determinate sample of documents investigated amounted for 2752 items. Secondly, the selected papers were visualised with VOSviewer software to build the network maps displaying the relationships among the keywords. Thus, the obtained results allowed describing the main directions in the scientific treatise on customer loyalty to banking as well as highlighting the scientific schools interested in exploring the investigated theme.
