CAMPOS, Regina Helena de Freitas  e  BERNARDES, Lúcia Helena Garcia. The periodical Psicologia Ciência e Profissão: a recent historical register of the brasylian Psychology. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.4, pp.508-525. ISSN 1414-9893.

The periodical Psicologia: Ciência e Profissão (Psychology: Science and Profession), edited by the Federal Council of Psychology, has been surveyed, in its 25 years of existence, providing evidence for the process of transformation that led it to be evaluated as a level A periodical by CAPES (the Brazilian Ministry of Education Agency) in 2000, thus being considered a leading source of information on Brazilian Psychology, distinguished for its excellence. Its journey is analyzed using as sources the following parts: cover, back-cover, editorial, technical records, table of contents, sections and subjects of the articles. All editions published between 1979 and 2004 were examined, covering 56 numbers. The periodical reveals Brazilian psychologists as professionals who listen to the society they live in and who create relevant practices for this society. Along these 25 years, the review registered the building of a new identity for Brazilian Psychology, stemming from the discussion about its various fields of application and from the production of different views on these fields as well, showing how the profession moved from an elitist position to another one, based on a compromise to enlarge the offering of psychological services to wider parcels of the Brazilian population, thus increasing the social relevance of the profession.
