Charting The Growth Of Entrepreneurship: A Citation Analysis Of Fer Content, 1981–2008, Jeffrey D. Kushkowski

Reference and Instruction Publications and Papers

Since 1981 the Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference (BCERC) has published cutting edge entrepreneurship research. Using bibliometric techniques, this study examined the 3395 items included in Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research (FER), the BCERC proceedings, between 1981 and 2008. The results show that entrepreneurship is a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary field with an increasingly international focus. The results offer an understanding of the demographic, institutional, and topical trends within the field. This research provides valuable insights into the structure of entrepreneurship that librarians can use to provide better assistance to their entrepreneurship scholars.
