Objectives of Platform Research: A Co-citation and Systematic Literature Review Analysis

Part of the ZfbF-Sonderheft book series (ZFBFS,volume 75/20)

Abstract

Business economics research on digital platforms often overlooks existing knowledge from other fields of research which leads to conceptual ambiguity and inconsistent findings. To reduce these restrictions and foster the utilization of the extensive body of literature, we apply a mixed methods design to summarize the key findings of scientific platform research. Our bibliometric analysis identifies 14 platform-related research fields. Conducting a systematic qualitative content analysis, we identify three primary research objectives related to platform ecosystems: 1) general literature defining and unifying research on platforms; 2) exploitation of platform and ecosystem strategies; 3) improvement of platforms and ecosystems. Finally, we discuss the identified insights from a business economics perspective and present promising future research directions that could enhance business economics and management research on digital platforms and platform ecosystems.

Zusammenfassung

Die betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung zu digitalen Plattformen vernachlässigt häufig bestehendes Wissen aus anderen Forschungsbereichen, was zu konzeptioneller Ambiguität und inkonsistenten Ergebnissen führt. Um diese Einschränkungen zu verringern, wenden wir einen Mixed-Methods-Ansatz an, um die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der Plattformforschung zusammenzufassen. Die bibliometrische Analyse identifiziert 14 Forschungsfelder. Die folgende Inhaltsanalyse zeigt drei grundlegende Forschungsziele in Bezug auf Plattform-Ökosysteme: 1) allgemeine Literatur, die Plattformen definiert und verschiedene Forschungsansätze vereinheitlicht; 2) die Nutzung von Plattform- und Ökosystemstrategien; 3) die Verbesserung von Plattformen und deren Ökosystemen. Abschließend diskutieren wir die Ergebnisse aus betriebswirtschaftlicher Sicht und präsentieren zukünftige Forschungsrichtungen, die die betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung zu digitalen Plattformen und Plattformökosystemen voranbringen könnten.
