    Scholarly interest in interorganizational learning (IOL) has spiked in the last decade due to its potential to absorb, transfer and create valuable knowledge for enhanced innovative performance and provide sustainable competitive advantage. However, only a handful of review studies exist on the topic. The evolution of IOL has not been studied explicitly and, unfortunately, there is a lack of understanding of the field trends. In order to fill this gap, we comprehensively review the literature on IOL and map its evolution and trends using bibliometric techniques. In particular, we use visualization of science mapping (VOS) freeware to systematize our findings and interpret the results. Through an analysis of 208 journal publications obtained from the Scopus database, we synthesise the findings through a set of research questions. Our analysis identifies the leading authors, countries, highly cited papers, key hotspots, intellectual foundations and emerging trends in IOL. We conclude by providing promising avenues for future research."
