RAMOS, Denise Marina  e  ZANIOLO, Leandro Osni. Tendencies and perspectives of academic production on the theme of deaf education: mapping productions. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.303-318. ISSN 1413-6538.

This study aimed to present some tendencies and perspectives of academic research production related to the theme of deaf education, considering dissertations and theses contained in the CAPES Database according to the SUBJECT Deaf education and YEAR 2005 to 2009. An exploratory investigation of descriptive and bibliographical nature was carried out. Using bibliographic information and academic productions abstracts, the aim was to catalogue relevant information and map this field of knowledge. The collected data enabled us to observe the yearly distribution according to the mode of academic production, the geographical distribution, according to location of public and private universities, funding levels and the graduate programs responsible for the production. The results corroborate the results from other studies that focused on similar aspects, such as the steady growth in the number of Masters’ and Doctoral studies in the country, the prevalence of productions at the Masters’ level, the geographical distribution and institutional studies concentrated in the Southeast and Southern regions, and the insufficient level of funding, by means of grants and scholarships for scientific production. The study showed the involvement of a significant percentage of private institutions, the prevalence of studies related to Education, Language and Literature, and Linguistics programs, as well as the presence of programs commonly observed in diverse areas of investigation, such as Computer Science, Engineering and Technology programs. Finally, the study underscores the importance of studies aiming to organize and inventory the academic and scientific production in a specific field of knowledge, contributing to advancing the area and its research objects.
