DE SORDI, José Osvaldo; MEIRELES, Manuel; CIRANI, Cláudia Brito Silva  y  AZEVEDO, Márcia Carvalho de. Declaration of input sources in scientific research: should this practice be incorporated to organizational information management?. Perspect. ciênc. inf. [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.2, pp.17-38. ISSN 1981-5344.

This research studies the declaration of input sources for research in scientific communications, more specifically, whether this practice of the academy may be considered a good example to be followed by organizations. Seven hypotheses address two dimensions of input sources: origin (primary or secondary) and nature (data or information). It appears that the declaration of research inputs in the academy is problematic, mostly incomplete or inaccurate. This does not reduce the importance of this practice; it simply indicates that the academy should not be considered a privileged space, with wide dominance and practice excellence. Nevertheless, the information environment of organizations can learn and benefit from the experience of the scientific academy. From the analyses of the research sample, a set of procedures has been developed, which allowed organizational analysts and researchers to elaborate a complete and accurate analysis of the input sources to be declared in organizational or scientific communication.
