This paper investigates the body of international entrepreneurship knowledge to identify keytrends,researchdirectionsandemergingresearchtopics. First,21systematicand6non-systematic reviewarticlespublishedbetween1998and2018arereviewed. Theanalysisofthese27reviewarticles explores the trends and directions of development in the field, and provides a set of dimensions for evaluating the body of literature. A systematic review of 126 special issue articles using these dimensions proceeds with an assessment of the breadth and depth of international entrepreneurship special issue literature, and provides validation for the key areas and directions of development for international entrepreneurship research. Trends identified include the convergence between international business and entrepreneurship literatures, the focus on SME internationalization and various forms of international new ventures and born globals. Later years show the emergence of comparative international entrepreneurship and comparative entrepreneurial internationalization as research topics, emphasizing the importance of integrating empirical evidence between countries and contexts. There is a gap in the body of knowledge regarding emerging and transitional country contexts. There is also more room for comparative research that could also support the adaptationanddevelopmentofcontextspecifictheories,providingafuturedirectionforinternational entrepreneurship researchers.
