Innovation is known as a major contributor to wealth creation and economic growth. As the studies on innovation become more diverse and all-encompassing, comprehension and synthesization of the large literature become more complicated. Thus, this paper systematically reviews the literature on innovation published over the past 13 years to identify trends and debates in innovation studies. This review is based on 178 articles that have been published in journals from four major databases, namely EBSCOhost, Emerald, DOAJ, and Science Direct from the year 2000 until 2013. This review reveals the trends, the major publishers, themes of discussion within this field and the country that became the focus of innovation researches.
