The objective of this article is to record the trends of study regarding the relationships between resources and capabilities, according to the Resourced Based View of the Firm. This document presents a review of the literature in its definitions and typologies from 1984 to 2016, followed by a bibliometric analysis of the investigations that evaluate relationships between resources and capabilities in themselves, during the period 2001-2016. For this analysis, we used records of the Web of Science, and subsequently processed them using VantagePoint®. The bibliometric analysis includes 5 indicators: annual productivity, productivity by countries, most influential authors, most productive magazines and most cited articles. A general low productivity was identified, being 2010 the year with the largest number of articles written and published. United States is the country with the highest academic activity related to the topic. The most cited articles were published in 2003 and the most productive authors have 3 publications each. Thus, important academic gaps are evident in this topic. Likewise, in the literature, no bibliometric reviews were found about the impact that certain resources can have on the development of entrepreneurial capabilities, which is why study paths related to this particular topic are suggested.
