COSTA, Joyce Pereira da et al. Scientific Production about Undergraduate Training in Psychology in Brazil. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.2, pp. 130-138. ISSN 1982-1247.

This paper aims to analyze studies on psychology undergraduate training in Brazil. 176 documents (articles, books, book chapters, theses and dissertations) published until 2011 were collected. The following topics were analyzed: Year of publication, authorship, geographic distribution, study design, areas in psychology and the undergraduate training. The main results indicate that publications on this subject are dispersed and mostly composed of opinionative essays, and that a large part of the publications focus on traditional areas of psychology, and adopt an internalist perspective on the analysis. It is concluded that we need an increase in cooperation among researchers of this field as well as more empirical studies related to the subject, and that considering macropolitical determinants is important for a better understanding of the undergraduate training process.

Keywords : Psychology undergraduate training; scientific publication; documentary analysis.
