Abstract

El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar el contenido y la evolución de la investigación sobre el GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor). Con tal finalidad se realizó una búsqueda de artículos de los trabajos que han utilizado las bases de datos GEM, en las revistas de emprendimiento incluidas en el Journal Citation Reports (JCR). Los principales resultados del estudio apuntan a que el enfoque teórico más utilizado es el institucional. A su vez, son todavía escasas las publicaciones en revistas de impacto, sin embargo la tendencia de dichas publicaciones es incremental, existiendo nichos interesantes para futuras investigaciones.

This paper analyzes the content and the evolution of the research based on the GEM Project (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor). With this aim, a rigorous search of the published articles in the journals included in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) was made, through an exploratory analysis focused in the articles that have used GEM data. The main findings of the study show that institutional approach is the most useful conceptual framework. Also, although there are still few academic publications using GEM data, the number of articles is increasing in terms of “niches” for future research lines.
