Aiming to do research on the publications of the last ten years, regarding the evaluation of the self-concept in the school context, the present study evaluated the articles found in journals classified as Nacional A by CAPES.

Among the analyzes concerning the area, authorship and samples, the Southeast presented a larger concentration of articles. It was identified the frequent use of the multiple authorship and research on children. The references presented more articles and books, with predominance of the international literature. As for the evaluation instruments, the most used were the Piers-Harris Children Scale and the Children and Youth Self-Concept Scale EAC-IJ.
