25 Years of Research on Absorptive Capacity: A Bibliometric Investigation

Track: Business Strategy

Keywords: Absorptive capacity, co-citation analysis, organizational learning, strategic management

Since its introduction by Cohen and Levinthal in 1989, the concept of Absorptive Capacity (ACAP) has become one of the most actively researched topics in the management literature. However, the definitions components, antecedents, and outcomes of ACAP have been extremely heterogeneous and had hindered the progress of the ACAP literature. This study presents an extensive bibliometric co-citation analysis to explain the advancement of ACAP research to decipher the rather fragmented yet burgeoning growth of ACAP literature.
