Abstract: Based on 19,860 citations in 282 articles, this study uses social network theory as a basis for its implementation to identify critical research topics for two time periods over a total of 15 years (2006-2020) in international social entrepreneurship (ISE) research. Using a bibliometric approach to review the theoretical configurations of the domain, an integrative framework is presented as a guiding foundation for future research. Six components of an international social venture’s (ISV’s) strategic development are identified: motives/intentions, identity, resources/capabilities, type, scope, and focus. In addition, the ISV’s use of adaptation through governance structures, skills development, and internationalization decisions is examined, which increases both the social and commercial performance outcomes of social value creation. Taken together, this presentation provides insight into the conceptual development and practical application of multiple forms of bibliometric analysis as a network-based phenomenon in the ISE and other contexts.
