COSTA, Nilson do Rosário. Assessment of intellectual production and the decline of inter-disciplinarity in Public Health. Physis [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.2, pp. 681-699. ISSN 0103-7331. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-73312012000200015.
This work shows that the form of scientific biomedical journals is dominant in the field of Public Health. It supports the thesis that this institutional pattern is completely inadequate for the inter-disciplinary areas, such as Public Health. The spread of the moving biomedical model has generated great distortions when applied to the assessment of the intellectual production of the field of humanities and social sciences applied to health.
Keywords : assessment; intellectual production; bibliometrics; graduation programs; CAPES.
