The literature shows contradictory results in the direction and intensity of the relation between size and innovation. This study presents the results of a metaanalytic investigation, which aims to clarify this discrepancy. The sample used was made up of 87 correlations taken from 53 empirical studies published in leading journals in the field of business administration. The analysis carried out confirmed the existence of a significant and positive correlation between size and innovation, and that the contradictory results of previous studies are due to divergences in the way the variables analysed are measured. La literatura muestra resultados contradictorios relativos a la dirección e intensidad de la relación entre tamaño organizativo e innovación. Este estudio presenta los resultados de una investigación meta-analítica cuyo principal objetivos es explicar esta discrepancia. La muestra utilizada se compone de 87 correlaciones pertenecientes a 53 estudios empíricos publicados en revistas internacionales de reconocido prestigio en el campo de la administración de empresas. El análisis desarrollado confirmó la existencia de una correlación significativa y positiva entre el tamaño y la innovación, y además, los resultados contradictorios de los estudios empíricos previos se deben a las distintas formas de medición de las variables objeto de estudio.
