NEIVA, Elaine Rabelo  and  PAZ, Maria das Graças Torres da. An overview of Brazilian research and publications about organizational change. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 271-285. ISSN 1984-6657.

This paper analyzes Brazilian research on organizational change published in scientific journals on administration, sociology, psychology and health sciences, between 2000 and 2010, evaluated with a rating of A or B in the Qualis/CAPES. The articles selected, by means of title and abstracts, were classified by judges, who read them and created records on them, based on a previously developed standardized system of analysis and categorization of empirical investigations. Most of the texts present an object of study related to organizational change and address ongoing change processes and their content. It was concluded that the study subject, organizational change, was classified in terms of a broader scope and intensity, but with a character of continuity over time. Regarding the methodological approach, the results show studies that primarily adopt the methodological approach of qualitative case studies, using content analysis as the sole method of data analysis.Thus, it is concluded that there is a tendency to value the qualitative methodological approach and toward the lack of a theoretical basis. From the gaps found, the article suggests diversifying the methodological approaches and determining the theoretical basis of studies on the subject.

Keywords : Organizational change; assessments of organizational change; bibliographic review; organizational behavior.
