The chapter is organized as follows: First, we develop a theoretical framework for studying unintended consequences of innovation. Then, we present the results of the ﬁ rst literature review on what undesirable consequences of innovation have been found and position them tentatively in relation to Fagerberg and Verspagen’s (2009) mapping of ‘innovation studies.’ We then validate our ﬁ rst search results by conducting a second article search,3 this time focused on the ﬁ ve most inﬂ uential journals in ‘innovation studies,’ and reporting the reading of the six most inﬂ uential innovation handbooks. Finally, we discuss the ﬁ ndings and draw some conclusions concerning research in the scientiﬁ c ﬁ eld of innovation.
