The use of new technologies made it possible to improve business and transactions, reinforce cooperation models, strategic alliances and internal and external networks for enterprises. In addition, companies gain competitiveness, innovation and explore new markets. In this context, the virtual organization has become an important research topic. However, given the complexity of the issue several areas have studied virtual organizations under different aspects which may delay the direction and contribution of research on this subject. In order to identify and evaluate the production of recent years, it was possible to understand the recent research configuration to serve as a source for future research opportunities. Therefore, from a systematic literature review, a classification was created to analyze the characteristics of the events and the scientific journals in which these references were published. Despite the systematic method used for the search of references, this study cannot be considered exhaustive and was conducted in order to explore and describe the topics related with cooperation and innovation in virtual organizations. It was observed that, regardless of the channel (event, scientific journal), most of the references is regarded, first, to Computing or Systems and, secondly, to the Management or Production, two areas of study with opportunities for future researches. Theme researchers or new researchers interested in this topic can thus understand the configuration of the studies in approaches with feasibility to be explored in the future.
