RODRIGUES, Carlos Manoel Lopes  and  FAIAD, Cristiane. Research on psychosocial risks at work: a bibliometric study of brazilian national production from 2008 to 2017. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.1, pp. 571-579. ISSN 1984-6657.

The research on psychosocial risks at work has been developing in the world in the last three decades, in the attempt to understand this class of occupational risks. In order to characterize this field of study, the bibliometric analysis of the Brazilian national production from 2008 to 2017 was carried out. We identified 37 articles that were analyzed regarding the area of ​​the journal, temporal evolution, institutional affiliation, co-authoring relations, number of references, number of citations, type of study, and instruments. The bibliometric indicators were analyzed through non-parametric tests. The results indicate a stationary production, with a predominance of publications in the Nursing and Public Health area. We identified isolated groups of researchers, with low participation of researchers in the field of psychology. Empirical studies are largely descriptive and centered on health professions. The conclusions point to the need for greater integration between researchers and the development of long-term research projects.

Keywords : occupational risks; psychosocial risks at work; worker's health.
