Tras varios años de investigación en redes organizacionales, los resultados son aún fragmentarios y contradictorios. El objetivo de este estudio fue hacer una revisión cuantitativa de la investigación sobre redes interorganizacionales cumplida en el periodo 2005-2008. Se analizaron de 275 una muestra 448 artículos tomados de revistas registradas en la ISI y se concluyó que los temas de relaciones, confianza, alianzas estratégicas, innovación, internacionalización, y cooperación concentran los intereses de investigación en el campo de redes interorganizacionales. Los autores destacan la necesidad de que futuros estudios arriesguen nuevos enfoques metodológicos, para profundizar el conocimiento en esta área
