Main Abstract Content: PURPOSE
Traditional literature analysis is time consuming, what in the light of the increase in the number of scientific journals and the decrease in the time academics have to read them, calls for the use of more qualitative tools. This paper presents analysis research in the international entrepreneurship subfield of international new ventures research. We apply co-word analysis, burst detection and science mapping to reveal and visualize the underlying conceptual structure.
 
DESIGN/METHODOLOGY
Using articles from the Web of Science database, 404 publications published in SCI-EXPANDED, SSCI, A&HCI, CPCI-S, CPCI-SSH and ESCI outlets between 1994 and 2016 period were extracted and included in the analysis. To identify clusters we use the VOS mapping technique (Van Eck and Waltman 2007; Van Eck et al. 2006) implemented in VOSviewer software (Van Eck & Waltman 2010). To identify the emerging and fading themes Kleinberg’s (2002) burst detection algorithm is adapted implemented in CiteSpace software (Chen 2004, 2006).
 
RESULTS
We found that the network is fragmented with a strong identity of keywords. A total of 13 clusters were identified, representing the major themes in the selected body literature. It also revealed the fading, emerging, and central themes.
 
LIMITATIONS
The study is based on the information provided in keywords from the abstract, included in the title of articles and keywords provided from authors.
 
RESEARCH/PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS
The use of described methods brings a new perspective to the issue of rapid building a conceptual structure.
 
ORIGINALITY/VALUE
The study highlights the conceptual structure of an international new ventures subfield.
