Entrepreneurial ecosystems : analysing the status quo.

Kang, Q. and Li, H. and Cheng, Y. and Kraus, S. (2020) 'Entrepreneurial ecosystems : analysing the status quo.', Knowledge management research & practice. .


Entrepreneurial ecosystem is an emerging field that prioritises in-depth discussions of the sustainable development of entrepreneurship. Scientometric analysis of the results of entrepreneurial ecosystem research helps understand the dynamics and development trends, providing new ideas for research on the sustainable development of entrepreneurial activities. This study conducts a quantitative examination of the development status of entrepreneurial ecosystem research using scientometric analysis and 286 articles focusing on entrepreneurial ecosystems. We identified the most influential institutions, authors, journals, references, betweenness centrality, as well as disciplines and topics in the field. Our paper summarises the literature on the entrepreneurial ecosystem from the perspective of scientometrics, analyses the research dynamics, and provides a foundation for future research on entrepreneurial ecosystems.
