Abstract

Purpose: To assess if it exists the close relationship suggested by some authors between open innovation and absorptive capacity. Design/methodology: Bibliometric analysis on the Web of Science about the international literature where both terms are treated simultaneously. Findings: It has been shown that it is a field of growing interest and that there is a close relationship between open innovation and absorptive capacity. Research limitations/implications: The bias due to the database selected and the selection criteria applied (they could affect the no selection of some significant articles). Practical implications: To know that the absorption capacity is related to open innovation can help organizations become more innovative enhancing this capability. Originality/value: The approach used is a novelty and the conclusions can better understand the relationship between both terms (open innovation and absorption capacity). Thus, it can help increase innovation.
