JACINTO, Asaph Armando. Researches About Higher Education In Brazil. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2021, vol.44, n.2, e34595.  Epub Apr 25, 2022. ISSN 1981-2582.

The field of Higher Education is advancing worldwide. This work aimed to apply a bibliometric approach on scientific publications about education in the sector of Higher Education, especially concerning the Brazilian ones. For this purpose, the database of Web of Science was used. The analyzed indicators included the Brazilian position worldwide concerning the number of papers and of citations, languages of publications and international collaborations. They were compared with other countries in MERCOSUR and in Latin America. In addition, the main institutions and funding agencies in Brazil were verified. The results showed that Brazil is the most prolific country in the Latin America, and it is among the most important in the world too. Most of the Brazilian articles were in Portuguese. Most of the Brazilian researchers were from public universities (e.g., USP, UFSC and Unesp) and supported by public agencies (as CNPq, CAPES and FAPESP). While most of the international collaborations happened with Portugal, Spain and USA. Besides that, suggestions of future studies in this area were indicated.
