Networks and Performance of Creative Cities: A Bibliometric Analysis

Abstract:

This study makes a systematic review of the literature on networks and performance of creative cities, consisting of a bibliometric analysis whose final sample covered 102 publications. The results reveal growing interest in the concept of creative cities, identifying two clusters: (1) Creative cities and their connection with the creative class and culture; and (2) Creative/cultural clusters and networks. Based on the evidence obtained, a gap remains concerning the lack of additional studies on the performance of creative cities and the corresponding determinant factors, such as networks. Some theoretical and practical implications are presented, together with suggestions for future research.
