Abstract

The objective was to identify the factors and approaches present in the scientific production on entrepreneurial intention (IE). Therefore, the database Web of Science served as a reference for the selection, collection, analysis, and systematization of the 59 scientific articles selected from January 2013 to January 2016. The design was quantitative and descriptive. It was adopted the bibliometric technique for analysis of the citations, and the software Bibexcel to generate a matrix of quotes. This matrix, in turn, was analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and the exploratory factor analysis (EFA). The factors that emerged from the factor analysis were seven: Entrepreneurship; Cultural Influence and Personal Factors; Entrepreneurial Education and Influencing Variables; Development of Entrepreneurial Intention; Entrepreneurial Risks, Conceptual Tools, and Enterprising Women. The approaches, in turn, were 17, corresponding to the specificities of the factors of the articles analyzed. These approaches indicated the essence of the articles analyzed, enabling the sorting and systematization of what has been approached in the literature on EI. It was possible to highlight the approaches relative to the Entrepreneurship, Cultural Influence and Personal Factors, Entrepreneurial Education and Entrepreneurial Women. There was a connectivity between the authors, the factors, and the permanent approaches to the literature on EI. The contribution of this research expands and complements the overview that has been recently made about the literature published at EI in the individual level.
