Djokovic, D. and Souitaris, V. (2008). Spinouts from academic institutions: a literature review with suggestions for further research. The Journal of Technology Transfer, 33(3), pp. 225-247. doi: 10.1007/s10961-006-9000-4

Abstract

This paper provides a comprehensive literature review of the phenomenon of spinouts from academic institutions. We systematically identified spinout papers in key management journals, categorised the literature and critically synthesised the findings. We present the findings of each literature stream in turn and also identify inconsistencies and directions for further research. We conclude that while the early literature has been mainly atheoretical and focused on describing the phenomenon, a core group of recent studies were theory-driven.
