Research in entrepreneurship has grown rapidly, encompassing multiple theoretical and methodological traditions. This special issue is devoted to understanding the scientific structure of entrepreneurship research. Articles included in this issue use bibliometric techniques to find linkages within published entrepreneurship scholars. These analyses compellingly show that: research in our field contains: multiple but disconnected research themes; dominant research themes reflecting the disciplinary training and lens of authors; very few papers get cited even in our disciplinary journals; and key research themes and foci are subject to considerable dynamism and change. The articles provide rich opportunities for insightful, influential and creative research in the field.
