Research on sustainable entrepreneurship has gained significant attention in recent years, aligning with the United Nations’ 2030 sustainable development goals. This paper aims to conduct a bibliometric analysis on sustainable entrepreneurship research, utilizing data from the Scopus database spanning from 2012 to 2023. Utilizing bibliometrix R package software, the study delves into various analyses such as citation analysis, co-citations, bibliographic coupling, and co-authoring. The findings highlight key authors, influential journals, and leading countries in the field. Notably, the publication trend has peaking in 2021. Germany, United Kingdom, Pakistan, China and Italy emerged as the most influential countries, while journals like the Journal of Cleaner Production and Sustainability held significant sway. This research serves as a valuable resource for scholars, offering insights into the evolution of sustainable entrepreneurship, aiding in the development of theoretical frameworks and future research endeavors.
