CARDOSO, Hugo Ferrari; BAPTISTA, Makilim Nunes; SOUSA, Denise Francioni Amorim de  and  GOULART JUNIOR, Edward. Burnout syndrome: analysis of national literature between 2006 and 2015. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 121-128. ISSN 1984-6657.

Research on burnout syndrome had its start in Brazil in the mid-1970s. This study aimed to investigate the scientific literature of empirical articles on burnout published in two national databases (SciELO and PePSIC) between the years 2006 and 2015. We analyzed 141 scientific articles, and among the main results, variability was found in relation to the sample size investigated in the articles. The phase of human development most investigated was for young adults, with the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) being the instrument most frequently used to assess burnout. The results are compared with national studies that were also conducted to evaluate the literature in different periods, using similar and /or different indicators from those evaluated here. In addition, some limitations are indicated at the end of the discussion.

Keywords : literature review; burnout; Brazil.
