MACIEL, Carina Elisabeth; CUNHA JUNIOR, Mauro  e  LIMA, Tatiane da Silva. The scientific production on permanence and dropout in higher education in Brazil. Educ. Pesqui. [online]. 2019, vol.45, e198669.  Epub 18-Set-2019. ISSN 1678-4634.

The scope of this article is the permanence and dropout in higher education in Brazil. Its objective is to unveil the publications on permanence and dropout in higher education published as theses, dissertations, and articles. Methodologically, this is a bibliographical research, based on a modality known as state of art or state of knowledge. In this context, for the survey of academic production, we used the databases SciELO, GT 11 / ANPEd, Oasisbr, Portal of Periodicals CAPES/MEC and Public Domain. In summary, in relation to permanence, 9 theses, 22 dissertations, and 58 articles were located; in the case of dropout, 15 theses, 75 dissertations, and 122 articles were located. Regarding permanence, we observed that the studies focus on the following topics: permanence and EaD, permanence and ProUni , and permanence and students with disabilities; for dropout, works address mainly dropout in a set of courses, dropout in EaD , and dropout in a course of a specific institution. In addition, it is evident that research on permanence began as of 2004, with a significant growth between 2012 and 2016; in terms of dropout, production began in 1977, with an exponential increase between 2011 and 2014. In relation to the institutions where the research was carried out, the southern region of Brazil has most and the more significant productions concerning these issues. Finally, it is noted that the number of interinstitutional cooperation is still incipient so the dialogue between institutions needs to be enhanced.
