You just have a typo, the package is called bibliometrix not bibliometric and biblioshiny is not a package it's a shiny app distributed along with the package.

install.packages("bibliometrix", dependencies=TRUE) 

Thank you very much Mr andresrcs for the info I have installed install.packages("bibliometrix", dependencies = T). However, I got this update in Console after installation:

package ‘farver’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
Error in install.packages : ERROR: failed to lock directory ‘C:\Users\LEN0V0\Documents\R\win-library\3.6’ for modifying
Try removing ‘C:\Users\LEN0V0\Documents\R\win-library\3.6/00LOCK’

#Load bibliometrix
Error in library("bibliometrix") :
there is no package called ‘bibliometrix’

Just follow the instructions from the error message.

And try to install again

Again, thank you very much Mr andresrcs and really appreciate it. I have successfully installed the package after removed the file.
