Sharing Economy is studied as a new economic trend. This paper analyzed the pattern of publishing of the subject, focused on the number of papers published per year. To find what are the thematic categories addressed, this study surveyed papers in Google Scholar and correlated the 649 most relevant papers between 2006 and 2016. Themes related to the legal challenges and new types of consumption enacted by Sharing Economy are discussed, as well as the relationships between the ridesharing industry and sustainability matters.
