BibliometryBy Godefroy Kizaba
This paper proposes a reconceptualization of entrepreneurship using the co-quotation method, a bibliometric tool that has scarcely been explored in French-speaking management spheres. It is intended to describe the characteristics and trends of scientific work in French on the subject of entrepreneurship published between 1995 and 2005 in various publications, including: Revue Internationale de PME (RIPME), Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat, Revue de Sciences de Gestion, L’Expansion, Gestion 2000, and other research publications from research laboratories and research centers. 125 projects completed by 190 researchers were collected and analyzed. The co-quotation networks in the papers’ bibliographies provide information on the genealogy of the themes related to entrepreneurship and make it possible to identify the recent evolution of research in this field.
