The purpose of this paper is to characterize the intellectual development of a topic called Technology management by using bibliometric tools. The idea is to identify patterns and key research topics during the last decade. The methodology used consists of three major phases, namely the collection of relevant information from the Science Citation Index (SCI) at the Institute for Scientifc Information (ISI), the transformation of information by descriptive and co-occurrence analysis, and the gathering of results. The main results show emerging research topics such as elearning, digital libraries, climate change, electronic data exchange, organizational practices, and customer orientation; which we believe should improve the application of Technology management theories.
