O impacto da sociologia: cultura de citações e modelos científicos / The impact of sociology: citation culture and scientific models

Antonio da Silveira Brasil Jr., Lucas Correia Carvalho

Resumo


O artigo discute alguns dos problemas envolvidos na utilização de métricas tradicionais de impacto da produção científica quando aplicadas às ciências sociais e, sobretudo, à sociologia. Aliando técnicas cientométricas com a abordagem sociológica, analisamos algumas das variáveis que permitem problematizar o uso universal dessas métricas, chamando a atenção para as especificidades das áreas do conhecimento e dos diferentes contextos científicos nacionais. Em perspectiva comparada, o artigo sugere que 1) artigos de um mesmo contexto nacional tendem a um perfil próximo de citação (“culturas de citação”); 2) temáticas relacionadas a questões nacionais não é um padrão exclusivo da sociologia brasileira.

Abstract

The article discusses some of the problems involved in using traditional metrics of impact of scientific production when applied to social sciences and, above all, to sociology. Combining scientometric techniques with the sociological approach, we analyzed some of the variables that make it possible to problematize the universal use of these metrics, drawing attention to the specificities of the areas of knowledge and the different national scientific contexts. In a comparative perspective, the article suggests that 1) articles from the same national context tend to have a close citation profile (“citation cultures”); 2) themes related to national issues are not an exclusive pattern of Brazilian sociology.
