State-of-the-art current research in international entrepreneurship: A citation analysis.


Sascha Kraus

This article applies a literature-based analysis in its discussion of the research field of international entrepreneurship. It uses bibliometric citation analysis as its primary investigative method. The basis of the citation analysis was formed by articles coming from a number of electronic publication databases that contained the term “international entrepreneurship” in their titles, and which could thus be clearly categorized into this research field. The 40 publications identified in this manner resulted in a database of 2,659 citations. Upon observing the citation analysis and the clusters of topics that result, it becomes clear that the research on international entrepreneurship is influenced by the scientific fields of international business, entrepreneurship theory, SME internationalization, and born global/international new venture theory.
