The existing literature has studied massively enterprise strategic responses to institutional pressure, but because of complexity of institutional surroundings, scholars have drawn different conclusions, and even have had distinct understanding of classification of institutional pressure and strategic responses. Therefore, this paper adopts scientometrics analysis and content analysis to summarize systematically the articles about enterprise strategic responses to institutional pressure, sorts out the concept of institutional pressure and the connotation&classification of strategic responses, concludes diverse aspects of institutional pressure and their influences on enterprise strategic responses, and then reveals the important role of informal institutional pressure in enterprise strategic responses. It further puts forward that scholars should integrate multiple theories to strengthen the study of enterprise strategic responses in Chinese context, and extend boundary and application scope of institutional theory.
