In this article, we conducted a systematic literature review (SLR) on Business Lobbying. Our objective was to map the evolution of the main theories over the past 124 years, by comparing them with COVID-19 literature from recent years. We extracted a total of 1,988 publication records from Google Scholar and Scopus using keyword searching, resulting in 3,174,947 citations. Based on these records, we performed a bibliometric analysis. A careful content analysis revealed that the scholarly research revolves mainly around three themes: (a) business lobby, (b) process, and (c) regional studies. The number of citations on business lobbying has multiplied seven-fold during the past 50 years and might double in the coming decades. Our article also suggests recommendations for future studies.
