MARTINS, Alberto Mesaque; CARVALHO, Cristiene Adriana da Silva  and  ANTUNES-ROCHA, Maria Isabel. Research in social representations in Brazil: cartographic of the groups registered on CNPq. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.1, pp. 104-114. ISSN 1516-3687.

In this work, we identify and characterize the Brazilian research groups that develop the social representation theory (SRT). We collected data from the CNPq’s Research Groups Directory submitting terms like “social representation” and “social representations”, without time period. Then, we analyzed of the page groups, organized and analyzed of results. We identified 172 research groups studding SRT, the most part of them from the Southeastern region of Brazil. We concluded that SRT is a theoretical and methodological framework, active and in constant production in Brazil. SRT is an interdisciplinary theory, being present in different knowledge areas and fields, and it helps the comprehension of phenomena in distinct contexts.
