Spatial organization of urban-rural integration is the key to the understanding of urban- rural integration process and mechanism. In recent years, there were more research on urban-rural integration and spatial organization in China, but few focused on spatial organization of urban and rural integration. This paper analyzed the hot field of urban-rural integration and spatial organization in the last ten years by using CitespaceV. And Urban-rural spatial correlation and regional differences, evolution of urban-rural spatial form and structure, urban-rural interaction mechanism and elements flow, pattern and optimization path of urban-rural spatial organization, closely related to spatial organization of urban-rural integration, were reviewed. Based on the analysis of the contribution, deficiency and main trend on these studies, some directions of future research in spatial organization of urban-rural integration were put forward from the contents, perspectives, methods and areas of research. The research showed we should take more attention to the new urbanization, migrant workers, the equalization of public services, new rural construction, rural reform, information technology and other new factors. And it is important to interdisciplinary research on the connotation, characteristics, evolution, influencing factors, operation mechanism, effect evaluation, development model and other aspects of the spatial organization of urban-rural integration.

Key words: urban-rural interaction, spatial organization, research progress and prospect, Citespace, knowledge map
