Landström, Hans LU and Åström, Fredrik LU (2011) In Handbook Of Research On New Venture Creation p.34-71
Abstract
The aims of this chapter are to (i) place the research on new venture creation into the historical context of entrepreneurship research in general, (ii) highlight the pioneering works of William Gartner, and (iii) describe the development and characteristics of the research on new venture creation as an area within entrepreneurship research. The discussion in the chapter is mainly based on a set of bibliometric analyses using the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) for refereed publications on entrepreneurship and new venture creation published between 1956 and 2007. The results indicate that venture creation can be characterized as a rather small area within the field of entrepreneurship research. At the same time, many different... (More)
The aims of this chapter are to (i) place the research on new venture creation into the historical context of entrepreneurship research in general, (ii) highlight the pioneering works of William Gartner, and (iii) describe the development and characteristics of the research on new venture creation as an area within entrepreneurship research. The discussion in the chapter is mainly based on a set of bibliometric analyses using the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) for refereed publications on entrepreneurship and new venture creation published between 1956 and 2007. The results indicate that venture creation can be characterized as a rather small area within the field of entrepreneurship research. At the same time, many different conversations are going on within the area, using different concepts in order to understand the phenomena of venture creation. Over time, the research has been changeable and dynamic in terms of the research topics. However, the research on new venture creation appears to be anchored in two different knowledge bases, with a focus on micro- and macro-levels of analysis respectively. (Less)
