Authors: Maria Colurcioa, Bo Edvardssonb, Angela Caridàa
Abstract: The aim of study is to provide a better understanding of the resource integration phenomenon through a bibliometric analysis conducted on 1072 ISI listed journal articles. The most important contribution of the study is the overview of what resource integration is, how it has been portrayed in marketing and management research and a deeper understanding of the six most important dimensions or topics and their theoretical basis. Furthermore, the analysis highlighted a clear division within the knowledge structure of RI, defining essentially two main research areas on the topic: the old school of goods-based logic and the recent school of service-based logic.
Keywords: Resource Integration, Bibliometric Method, Innovation
