Brazilian researchers’ activity in international publication: a comparative view between Applied Social Sciences and Engineering

Autora: Malyina Kazue Ono Leal Coordenação: Mayumi Ilari, Daniel Ferraz
O estudo é baseado em coleta de dados junto a pesquisadores brasileiros com experiência em publicações de artigos acadêmicos em periódicos internacionais, e examina uma gama de práticas correntes, de acordo com a Teoria da Atividade de Engestrom. A análise dessas práticas revela que há inúmeros e sérios conflitos dentro das atividades que compõe o objeto final, a publicação. Essas informações enfatizam a necessidade de políticas institucionais que apoiem o trabalho dos pesquisadores, tanto no campo da pesquisa quanto no letramento acadêmico em português e em língua estrangeira.
