CANTAL, Clara; BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo E.  and  PORTO, Juliana B.. Cooperation, proactive behaviors, or simply organizational citizenship? A review of Brazilian production in the area. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.3, pp. 286-297. ISSN 1984-6657.

The term Organizational Citizenship holds a theoretical history of 37 years and an empirical history of 31 years. Its importance is highlighted by researchers and professionals internationally. In the decade of 2000, the number of international meta-analyses addressing the issue increased, as well as the number of articles reviewed in these meta-analyses and the study of Organizational Citizenship as a multidimensional construct. Given the history and the volume of international production on the theme, this article sought to review the Brazilian production of empirical articles about Organizational Citizenship from 1996 to 2013. Only eight articles were found in five of the 14 journals on Administration and Psychology evaluated. Three quarters of the articles studied Organizational Citizenship as a single construct composed of five dimensions. In these articles,two different scales were used to measure it. The review results suggest that the number of Brazilian publications in the area needs to increase, as well as the use of different data collection and research techniques to assess the relationship between Organizational Citizenship and its consequents.

Keywords : Organizational citizenship; national review; empirical articles.
