    Abstract

    In this chapter, Albareda and Hajikhani propose a literature review and bibliometric analysis on innovation for sustainability (IfS). Applying the Network Analysis Interface for Literature Studies (NAILS) toolkit, we study the impact and dissemination of five key IfS goal-oriented discussions: strategic, operational, organizational, collaborative and systemic. The strategic and operational discussions are the most cited, including major papers on strategic concepts and the development of operational changes structuring the research. Our bibliometric analysis shows how, since 2002, IfS has expanded from business management, strategy, innovation and operations connecting to the main discussion in environmental sciences, environmental engineering and ecology. The main challenge for researchers is to build scientific knowledge that has a real impact in organizations and businesses. Managers and entrepreneurs can use these five-oriented goals of IfS to understand how to apply IfS goals into real practices.
