Abstract: Different aspects have enhanced the development of scientific research in business and management in Chile. The aim of this paper is to analyse the characterisation of this scientific evolution. The method used is a Bibliometric analysis. Our sample examines any paper published between 1991 and 2015 in the Web of Science (WoS) database in the area of business and management. The main results show that the publications have had a significant increase. Scientific productivity increase may be related, among other factors: to the efforts of the Chilean universities that reward and incentivise publications in WoS; the participation of academics in competitive grants (Fondecyt); and international accreditations that demand more productive universities in terms of research. The results of the study could be interesting for universities from developing countries wishing to generate policies to increase the productivity in the areas of business and management.
