ANTUNES, José Leopoldo Ferreira. A dictionary in the dynamics of epidemiology. Rev. bras. epidemiol. [online]. 2016, vol.19, n.1, pp.219-223. ISSN 1415-790X.

This text synthesizes the impact of the book "A Dictionary of Epidemiology " in its two most recent editions (2008 and 2014). We related the reviews, discussions, and comments on the book in the specialized literature, as well as interventions of Miquel Porta, the editor of the publication, in the debate. We emphasized the importance of the dictionary in the dynamics of epidemiology as a source of bonding and debate for the professional environment, both before and after its publication. Finally, we offer suggestions on the new directions that may be taken in future editions of this volume.

Keywords : Epidemiology; Dictionary; Concept formation; Consensus; Education, public health professional; Epidemiologic studies..
