MetadataShow full item record
This exploratory study aims to profile the field of Competitive Intelligence (CI) academic research in Brazil. A characterization of research groups in CI is performed using data from Brazil’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico - CNPq). Research groups are defined by institutional affiliation, department affiliation, composition, size, location, and research lines. In the context of the current research groups, a citation analysis is performed based on journal publications authored by primary research group leaders and secondary leaders taking into consideration the types of works cited, language and origin of works cited, their relative age, most cited journals and most cited authors.
