This article aims to present the studies published in the EAP. In November 2015, a search was conducted and were found 34 studies, published between 2007 and 2015. The studies are presented in seven categories: the internal structure of the EAP; relations with affective and personality, cognitive assessment tools and professional interest in family background, academic variables, experience reports and stability of interests. Finally, a synthesis of the studies presented.
