Bibliometric Analysis, New Technology-Based Firms; Teams, Bibliographic Coupling, Co-citation, Co-authorship


Purpose: Due to its growing impact on the economic development of countries, research on venture teams in new technology-based firms - TBFs has been increasing in recent years, seeking to identify the success and failure factors of this type of firms, given their high mortality rates. This paper ana-lyzes the changes that have occurred in the intellectual structure of this discipline.


Methodology: The bibliometric method was used to analyze the theme of venture teams in the new TBFs. The information collected was extracted from the main collection of the Web of Science (WoS) and SCOPUS databases from 1987 to 2020. The Nvivo and VOSviewer softwares are used to perform the initial analyzesas well as the analysis of citations, co-citations, co-authorship, etc.


Findings and Conclusion: The advances associated with the main authors, sources and countries, the general citation structure and the development of this field are presented. The results show a growing publication trend as of 2009, seeing a higher production of articles between 2014 and 2019. USA is the most influential country, followed by China and Italy. The"Research Policy" and " Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal"are the most influential sources.


Originality/Value: The main contribution of this work is to show the evolution of this theme, so that researchers can use it in the future in their theoretical and research frameworks.
