Abstract

Como em várias outras atividades, a pesquisa em Economia internaliza um conflito entre qualidade e quantidade. Para avaliar tal conflito, este artigo documenta os trabalhos publicados entre 1999 e 2004 por 94 pesquisadores do CNPq e 1.209 pesquisadores de 54 centros americanos de referência em Economia. Os dados mostram que a média de publicações internacionais dos pesquisadores do CNPq é extremamente pequena, quando comparada com a de seus pares americanos com mesma orientação metodológica. Ainda assim, o número médio total das publicações dos pesquisadores no Brasil é estatisticamente maior, sugerindo um sacrifício de qualidade para aumentar o número de publicações.
