This article reviews the literature related to the concepts of social innovation and non-profit
organizations, applying a bibliometric analysis to the last five years of publications in the Scopus
platform andWeb of Science. The results suggest that these concepts complement rather than exclude
each other, as social innovation can add to the social value of this type of organization. The social
commitment of non-profit organizations and its relevance to integrating an innovative approach in
their management is also discussed as a way to confront social problems through innovation and
promote more participation and development in the social sector.
