The practice of academic entrepreneurship continues to rise as many institutions of higher learning embrace its role in stimulating the economy through commercialization of intellectual property. In contrast, research in the field pales relative to other areas of entrepreneurship. In order to reverse this problematic trend we first present a framework for academic entrepreneurship. Secondly, we conducted an extensive review of articles published in leading entrepreneurship journals from journal inception till the end of 2010 and compared the frequency of publication in academic entrepreneurship-related research to entrepreneurship research as a whole.
