Scientific research on digitalization and its impact on business models has been growing
exponentially in recent years. This has been particularly evident from 2010 onwards, following a
landmark special issue published in Long Range Planning. This article offers an overview of the
development of academic literature published between 2010 and 2019 with regards to the relationship
between digitalization and business models in 198 peer-reviewed articles. By applying a novel
methodological approach to compare results from different bibliometric analyses, such as the analysis
of citations, co-citations, bibliographic coupling, and co-occurrences of keywords, we have identified
the most influential journals, authors, and articles, as well as three thematic clusters (technological
innovation, strategic management, and digital transformation). For each cluster, the most relevant
contributions are presented. Promising research areas and future research directions are identified to
address the existing gaps in knowledge.
