The presence of Lusophony in the epistemic field of Communication Sciences: 10 years of themed studies
Palavras-chave:Lusophony, Lusophone Studies, communication, language policies, academic publication
Drawing up a survey of publications on lusophone themes in the field of Communication Sciences over the last 10 years (2007-2017) has made it possible to describe that scientific production and find that it has been increasing in volume. This scientific production is feminised and focuses on two voices, where Portugal and Brazil take on a predominant role, which contrasts with the state of citations in the field in general. Based on the themes examined, Lusocom emerges as the great think tank for Lusophone Studies in the Communication Sciences field. “The presence of Lusophony in the epistemic field of Communication Sciences” is an exploratory, descriptive study that takes a quantitative-qualitative approach, covering a sphere that comprises the conference proceedings of Sopcom, Ibercom and the Anuário Internacional de Comunicação Lusófona published by Lusocom. Of the total of 3.252 articles found, a sample of 142 were chosen, selected by theme, to form the basis for this study.
