Business incubators are increasingly important institutions in the economic scenario and focus of countless scientific researches. The objective of this work was to identify the clusters of the International scientific production on business incubators, through bibliometric analysis. We analyzed publications from the period 1984 to 2017, through a systematic mapping in periodicals and annals of congresses. Four clusters on the subject were identified: (i) implementation and management of incubators; (ii) management of companies served by incubators; (iii) incubation, knowledge transfer and competitiveness at the regional level; and, (iv) entrepreneurial education and culture in the context of higher education institutions. The cluster construction of scientific publications on business incubators points to technology scenarios, business models, and innovation strategies.
