The factors that influence Innovative Work Behavior (IWB) have been widely studied. Despite that, no research has ever comprehensively mapped the factors that affect IWB, especially in public organizations. Hence, this study aims to map the factors affecting IWB in public organizations. Based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta- Analyses (PRISMA) approach, 57 eligible studies were selected for review, and their findings summarized. The results of this study indicate that three factors are influencing IWB in public organizations, namely personal, inter/teamwork, and organizational factors. These three factors can function as independent variables, mediation, or moderators. This research produces a comprehensive IWB framework in public organizations. Managerial can develop various ways to improve the innovative behavior of its employees starting from personal, teamwork, and organizational factors such as leadership, HRM, organizational culture, and other behaviors.
