Description Purpose/Objective: This article aims to conduct a bibliometric study in order to analyze how the literature on international opportunities has addressed the issues surrounding its identification and origin. Method: A matrix was elaborated considering two fundamental aspects in the discussions on the theme: (1) how international opportunities are identified: created or discovered; and (2) the origin of the international opportunity: internal or external. Then, a bibliometric study was carried out, with an adaptation of the steps proposed by Ellegaard and Wallin (2015). The selected articles were classified in the proposed matrix. Originality/Relevance: This article innovates by developing an analytical tool that allows, through bibliometric study, the perception of how the literature on international opportunities has focused on some aspects and neglected others that could be complementary in the analysis, providing a more comprehensive understanding of the phenomena and closer to reality. Results: The literature has focused on opportunities discovered by an internal source of the company, such as the ability of managers to identify international opportunities; and neglected the opportunities created, mainly by an internal source, such as in processes of effectuation. Theoretical/methodological contributions: The contributions of this study reside, therefore, in the development of a matrix that represents, in a simple and objective way, the core of the discussions in the area, which involves origin and identification of international opportunities. In addition, the bibliometric study indicates the paths that have been taken by scholars in the area, as well as allowing to discuss potential themes for future studies.JEL CODE: M16
Propósito / Objetivo: Este artículo tiene como objetivo realizar un estudio bibliométrico con el fin de analizar cómo la literatura sobre oportunidades internacionales ha abordado las cuestiones que rodean su identificación y origen. Método: Se elaboró una matriz considerando dos aspectos fundamentales en las discusiones sobre el tema: (1) cómo se identifican: se crean o se descubren las oportunidades internacionales; y (2) el origen de la oportunidad internacional: interna o externa. Luego, se realizó un estudio bibliométrico, con una adaptación de los pasos propuestos por Ellegaard y Wallin (2015). Los artículos seleccionados fueron clasificados en la matriz propuesta. Originalidad / Relevancia: Este artículo innova al desarrollar una herramienta analítica que permite, a través del estudio bibliométrico, la percepción de cómo la literatura sobre oportunidades internacionales se ha enfocado en algunos aspectos y descuidado otros que podrían ser complementarios en el análisis, brindando una comprensión más integral de los fenómenos y más cerca de la realidad. Resultados: La literatura se ha centrado en oportunidades descubiertas por una fuente interna de la empresa, como la capacidad de los gerentes para identificar oportunidades internacionales; y desatendió las oportunidades creadas, principalmente por una fuente interna, como en los procesos de realización. Aportes teórico / metodológicos: Los aportes de este estudio residen, por tanto, en el desarrollo de una matriz que represente, de manera sencilla y objetiva, el núcleo de las discusiones en el área, lo que implica el origen e identificación de oportunidades internacionales. Además, el estudio bibliométrico indica los caminos que han tomado los estudiosos del área, además de permitir discutir posibles temas para futuros estudios.JEL CODE: M16 
Objetivo: Realizar um estudo bibliométrico, com o intuito de analisar como a literatura sobre oportunidades internacionais tem abordado as questões que envolvem sua identificação e origem. Método: Com base em dois aspectos fundamentais às discussões acerca das oportunidades internacionais, isto é, (1) como elas são identificadas (criadas ou descobertas); e (2) sua origem (interna ou externa), foi elaborada uma matriz, adaptando os passos propostos por Ellegaard e Wallin (2015) e, na sequência, este estudo bibliométrico. Originalidade/Relevância: Este artigo inova, ao desenvolver uma ferramenta analítica capaz de, por meio de um estudo bibliométrico, mostrar como a literatura sobre oportunidades internacionais tem se concentrado em alguns aspectos e negligenciado outros, que poderiam ser complementares na análise, proporcionando uma compreensão mais próxima da realidade e abrangente desses fenômenos. Resultados: A literatura tem se concentrado nas oportunidades internacionais descobertas por fontes internas da empresa, como a capacidade dos gestores em identificá-las; e negligenciado as criadas, principalmente, por fonte interna, como em processos de effectuation. Contribuições teóricas/metodológicas: O desenvolvimento, de forma simples e objetiva, de uma matriz representativa do cerne das discussões acerca da origem e da identificação das oportunidades internacionais; e a realização de um estudo bibliométrico, indicativo dos caminhos até então percorridos pelos estudiosos da área, que permite também discorrer sobre potencias temas para pesquisas futuras.CLASSIFICAÇÃO JEL: M16
