The strategic management discipline has vigorously grown since its foundation several decades ago (Durand et al., 2017; Ketchen et al., 2008; Nerur et al., 2008). Within half a century it has undergone “a considerable growth in the diversity of topics as well as in the variety of research methods applied” (Hoskisson et al., 1999, p. 418). From the outset, however, strategic management has been an interdisciplinary field (Schendel, 1994). In the recent past, several scholars have expressed concerns that the field has become fragmented (Durand et al., 2017; Hambrick, 2004; Ketchen et al., 2008), whereas others (Arora et al., 2016; Nag et al., 2007) consider this pattern as a sign of the domains richness. Assuming that keywords describe articles contents (Callon et al. 1991) and that citations of bibliographic references in academic journals are an indication of their influence (Ramos- Rodriguez & Ruiz-Navarro, 2004; Tahai & Meyer, 1999), this work delineates the structure of strategic management research and the disciplines key conceptual elements and intellectual foundations in the past decade (2008-2017). Moreover, the most influential contributions of strategic management research conducted within this time period are outlined. To better understand the fields nature, the evolution of its structure over time and the historical development of past decades key conceptual elements and intellectual foundations are traced. To accomplish these intents, a bibliometric mapping analysis of articles published between 2008 and 2017 in the ten most prestigious academic journals in the field of management and strategy as evidenced by the Social Sciences Citation Index is applied. The methods employed are keyword co-occurrence, citation and co-citation analysis. For the purpose of this analysis, the bibliographic mapping software VOSviewer is utilized, which is a software tool for the construction and visualization of bibliometric networks.
