Este estudio de mapeo bibliométrico tiene como objetivo analizar las contribuciones del campo de los negocios y la gestión durante la pandemia de COVID-19 ofrece nuevas direcciones para la investigación científica y la práctica. La investigación incluye 1200 artículos publicados entre 2020 y agosto de 2021, recuperados de la colección principal de la base de datos Web of Science (WoS). A través del software VOSviewer, se identificaron los autores más influyentes, los artículos más citados, las revistas más relevantes y las principales redes. Para identificar las principales tendencias, se llevaron a cabo dos análisis de contenido por grupos. El primero considera las principales palabras clave y el segundo un acoplamiento bibliográfico. Según el primer análisis, las principales tendencias habían sido el espíritu empresarial, la innovación, los nuevos modelos de gestión, el bienestar de los empleados y la comunicación. El segundo análisis indicó que la tendencia principal había sido el impacto de la pandemia en la producción, el consumo, la economía y las finanzas. Así mismo, el bienestar de los empleados (principalmente las enfermeras) y las estrategias para hacer frente a la crisis. Se discuten estas conclusiones y otras orientaciones.
