RIOS, Mino Correia  e  GONDIM, Sônia Maria Guedes. Psychological contract at work and academic production in Brazil. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 23-36. ISSN 1984-6657.

Recognized as a central concept for understanding in the field of organizational behavior, the psychological contract at work is a topic of broad research tradition on the international scene, yet little studied in Brazil. This article discusses the concept of the psychological contract, and critiques Brazilian academic production on this theme, focusing on doctoral theses, monographs, and dissertations available from internal sources. The results indicate that production covering psychological contracts in Brazil is recent, although the term was coined as far back as the 1960's. In addition, earlier investigations undertook to combine the psychological contract with other related topics, so that only in the last four years has the construct appeared as a main theme of research. This growth has been particularly evident in the field of Management, so it is assumed that, similar to what is happening in the international arena, psychological contracts will soon be seen as a powerful tool and support for management activity.

Palavras-chave : psychological contracts; scientific production review; psychological contracts in Brazil.
