Abstract

CASTRO, Elisa Kern de  and  REMOR, Eduardo Augusto. Psychosocial aspects and HIV/Aids: a comparative bibliometric study of the published articles between Brazil and Spain. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2004, vol.17, n.2, pp. 243-250. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722004000200012.

The present work examines the published papers related to the HIV/Aids topic between 1992-2002 comparing Brazilian and Spanish indexed publications at PsychoINFO. The papers collect were analyzed within seven categories: 1) country where the work was performed; 2) authors' profession; 3) journal's country; 4) language; 5) used methodology; 6) work's target population; and 7) topics researched. The results showed similar amount of published papers in both countries. It was found that most part of the Brazilian studies are performed in partnership between national and foreign institutions, resulting in international English-written publications, while the Spanish studies are both developed and published in Spain. The physicians are the professionals who publish more in both countries, and the predominant methodology is quantitative. Target population and investigated topics reflect the epidemiological data and the social reality of both countries.

Keywords : HIV; Aids; literature review; Brazil; Spain.
