GENTIL, Rosana Chami; GUIA, Beatriz Pinheiro da  and  SANNA, Maria Cristina. Organization of hospital chaplaincy services: a bibliometric study. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.1, pp.162-170. ISSN 1414-8145.

This bibliometric study is aimed at identifying the scientific production on Hospital Chaplaincy and classifying it according to the date of publication, the authors' degree of education, institutional and geographical provenance of the work, type of text and index keywords, as well as organizing the keywords in a conceptual map. 772 publications were found, 64 of which related to the object of study. The comprehensive analysis of the texts revealed that 29 titles had been produced from 1977 to 2008 in Australia, Canada, the USA, the UK and Portugal. The majority of titles concentrated on magazines specializing in pastoral care, although the production also encompasses journals dedicated to various themes. The conclusion is that the scientific production in the area is recent and located out of Brazil, and strongly influenced by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization. The authors' degree of education is varied, and evidence was found that this knowledge area is under construction, in light of the various keywords.

Keywords : Pastoral Care; Organization and Administration; Bibliometric Indicators.
