School of Economics & Management, Xi’an Shiyou University, Xi’an 710065, China
Sustainability issues make the transformation to a more sustainable business model increasingly desirable. This study aims to analyze the literatures on SBM to provide a systematic review of the current status of the SBM literatures. This paper uses visual bibliometrics and comparative research methods to carry out collaboration, co-citation, and co-occurrence analyses of the literatures from the Web of Science by CiteSpace. Compared with the existing literature reviews of SBM, this paper makes a set of knowledge maps and analyzes visual results based on BMI-3 category framework to show the features of literatures, the future trend and the potential approaches contributing to SBM. It is the first study to present the major clusters to reveal their associated intellectual bases and research fronts in SBM.
