BOEHS, Samantha de Toledo Martins et al. Review of latin american literature on retirement and work: psychological perspectives. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp. 54-61. ISSN 1984-6657.

This study aimed to perform a literature review on retirement and work, from psychological perspectives, based on articles published in Brazilian and Latin American journals. For this purpose, a search in three electronic databases (SciELO, LILACS, and PePSIC) was made, regardless of initial date, for publications dated until June 2014, using the Portuguese-language terms for "retirement" and "work", and their versions in English and Spanish. Considering the 42 articles selected for analysis, a significant increase in the number of studies on the subject was observed in recent years, with a predominance of empirical qualitative and quantitative studies characterized as research reports, especially on the topic of "Preparation for Retirement". The need is emphasized for diversifying the theoretical approaches and methods of research and intervention on the subject, in Latin America, to promote the reliability and completeness of results.

Keywords : retirement; work; literature review.
