JARROS, Rafaela Behs; DIAS, Hericka Zogbi J.; MULLER, Marisa Campio and SOUSA, Paulo Luis Rosa. Bibliometric study about de Brazilian production in the interface between psychology and spirituality-religiosity. Psic [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.2, pp. 251-258. ISSN 1676-7314.
A bibliometric revision of the Brazilian production about the interface between spirituality and psychology were analyzed, from 1998 to 2006. To achieve that were defined the themes (psychology and spirituality-religiosity) and search terms ("religiosity and psychology", "spirituality and psychology", and "spirituality" and "religiosity ") and searches were done in article and scientifical periodic online databases, of free and private access. Beyond that, manual searches were made at the libraries of the Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio Grande do Sul and Universidade Católica de Pelotas,. Were prioritized the periodic classified as National QUALIS A, B and C, and the Local ones. The results point out in the direction that until 2006, data on Brazilian production about the interface between spirituality and psychology are very few related to production totals. However, this number grows larger after the referred period. Thus, the production scenario were consider as growing, a very relevant information, in face of the important role of the spiritual-religious dimension in the personal development.
