Popis This contribution summarizes the results of a systematic analysis of publications on the topic of the digital divide, which were published in scientific journals in the years 2003–2022 in the Czech Republic. The digital divide includes inequalities in access to and use of information and communication technologies, which lead to inequalities in access to knowledge, employment opportunities, health care, and other areas. A content analysis of 50 professional studies, published in ten selected professional peer-reviewed journals, was carried out. From the point of view of the type of contribution, in the Czech Republic, specialist theoretical studies, quantitative research studies, qualitative research studies, and studies based on mixed research are devoted to the topic. In terms of topics, four prominent thematic categories were identified: the digital divide in the context of primary school, the digital divide in the context of higher education, the digital divide and seniors, the digital divide, and society. In the Czech Republic, unfortunately, relatively few researchers are devoted to the issue of the digital divide, and most professional studies deal only marginally with the topic. This phenomenon is particularly serious, due to the increasing digitization and the importance of the digital world for modern society, and in the future, there will be a need to increase the interest of professional workplaces to conduct further thorough research studies, and to look for solutions to limit digital exclusion in the Czech Republic.
