Health teaching as an object of research in academic graduate programs: an analysis of the Pro-Ensino na Saúde

This ambiguity seems to reveal that Pró-Ensino na Saúde, despite its contribution to the education of Masters, PhDs and post-doctors committed with the reorientation of health education, was still strongly recognized as a Program anchored on counter-hegemonic presuppositions regarding publication criteria, importance given to teacher education, and institutional recognition. Thus, it has become fragile due to the evaluative demands of the Brazilian graduate programs.

In the ideal cycle of Brazilian Science, undergraduate students participate in scientii c initiation programs and later in consistent graduate programs, thus qualifying them to participate in research groups and international cooperation programs, and ultimately helping to build the critical mass of professionals re- quired to carry on the research profession. This cycle can only become dynamic when we achieve quality primary and middle education, thus laying a founda- tion of citizens with ethical principles. Hence, the path that Brazilian oral sci- ence should take will necessarily be paved by investments in human beings, giv- ing it the structure needed for its intended purpose. Otherwise, we will not be able to be build science on solid ground.

REPUTATION IN COMPUTER SCIENCE ON A PER SUBAREA BASIS

REPUTATION IN COMPUTER SCIENCE ON A PER SUBAREA BASIS

In this dissertation, we study the reputation of publication venues and graduate pro- grams in Computer Science (CS) with focus on its subareas. For that we adopt the 37 CS subareas defined by Microsoft Academic Research and extend the usability of a reputation metric based on Markov networks, called P-score (for Publication Score). More specifically, we study the impact to the reputation of CS conferences, journals, and graduate programs in Brazil and US when subareas are taken into account. Our experiments suggest that the extended P-scores yield better results when compared with citation counts. We also present an overview of current research directions of Brazil and US, i.e. on which subareas they have the most prominent work nowadays. This analysis of reputation on a per subarea basis provides additional insights for uni- versity officials, funding agencies directors, and government officials who need to decide how to allocate limited research funds. For instance, it is known that the volume of US scientific publications in CS is significantly larger than to the volume of Brazilian CS research. However, this work shows that the CS subareas in which each country has major scientific impact are basically disjoint.

State, managerial training and the Brazilian graduate programs in administration: the PNTE case

State, managerial training and the Brazilian graduate programs in administration: the PNTE case

This article aims to understand how the Brazilian government articulated the National executive’s Training Program (PNTE) in Brazil in the 1970s. The text discusses the importance of PNTE as a governmental effort to disseminate postgraduate studies in administration in the country. Besides offering graduate education, the program had an important role in the dissemination of management in Brazil. The focus of the FGV EAESP case is justified by the fact that it was pointed out by the Brazilian Federal Government as the leading school for the program, having participated in its design and coordinated its implementation. The data was produced using documentary analysis and semi-structured interviews. The text reflects on the use of documents and memory for historical research in administration and, consequently, to record the influence of the PNTE school agreement between the years of 1972 and 1976. Finally, this discussion tackles the difficulties caused by the reformulations promoted by the PNTE in the structure and courses of FGV EAESP, in addition to relating them to the Brazilian historical context of the time. Keywords: Administration education; Americanism; education policies; history and administration.

SÉRIE ANTROPOLOGIA 384 NEOLIBERALISM AND HIGHER EDUCATION IN BRAZIL Gustavo Lins Ribeiro

SÉRIE ANTROPOLOGIA 384 NEOLIBERALISM AND HIGHER EDUCATION IN BRAZIL Gustavo Lins Ribeiro

The Forum of Executive Officers of Graduate Programs in Anthropology was created, years ago, to discuss relevant problems for anthropology’s teaching and research. It usually meets in congresses or other gatherings organized by the Brazilian Association of Anthropology (ABA). The Brazilian Association has since its inception organized open discussions on the teaching of anthropology in Brazil. Recently, it promoted a year and a half long research on the characteristics of the practice of anthropology in the country (see Trajano Filho and Ribeiro 2004). One of the goals of such an overarching research was to provide a picture that could go beyond that of CAPES annual reports. We are surely within the realm of politics. As such, Brazilian anthropologists, especially through ABA, their representative institution, are always paying attention to the policies that interfere with their practices. However, the efficacy of their political actions depends, like in other political situations, on their skills to make their points, to influence interlocutors and also on certain political junctures and alliances that may define the presence of a colleague who, as president of CAPES, is more sensitive to the particularities of anthropological issues and demands.

The Brazilian Ministry of Educai on and Culture (MEC) created the Open University System of Brazil (UAB) in 2005, whose priority was to educate primary educai on teachers through cooperai on among public higher educa- i on insi tui ons, Brazilian states and cii es. The goal is to enable access to higher educai on based on the DE meth- odology for segments of the populai on excluded from the educai onal process.

sub-disciplines. In the past several years, the Ministry of Education (MOE) of China and Academic Degrees Board of the National Council of China (ADBNCC) set up expert groups to evaluate each discipline. They maintain a discipline catalogue for graduate education programs and update it when necessary. In the catalogue, the Surveying and Mapping includes three sub-disciplines, Geodesy & Surveying Engineering, Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, and Cartography & Geographical Information Engineering. In the past decade, experts and educationalists in Surveying and Mapping found that the three sub-disciplines are not enough to meet the graduate education and training in the domain. We need more graduate programs targeted to the updated and extended domains. Since 2009, experts in the group of the Surveying and Mapping disciplineof ADBNCC, started to work on updating the catalogue for their discipline. These experts come from Wuhan University, National Geomatics Center of China, Southwest Jiaotong University, Tongji University, the PLA Information Engineering University, and China University of Geosciences. They work with experts from other graduate educational units in China to develop fine-grained sub-disciplines and propose a common guide for graduate program and education. As a result, three more sub-disciplines are added into the Surveying and Mapping. They are Navigation and Location-based Service, Mine and Underground Surveying, and Hydrographic Surveying and Charting (Figure 2). A new version of document on “Brief Introduction to Surveying and Mapping” was just released in 2013 to include the latest scientific and technological development of the discipline and updated sub-disciplines.

In YOUTH, GENDER AND SEXUAL PRACTICES IN BRAZIL, Maria Luiza Heilborn and Cristiane da Silva Cabral analyze the statements of male and female youth about their sexual practices and management of sexual desire from a quantitative study conducted in three Brazilian state capitals. The indings indicate a close connection between gender and sexuality in modeling youth’s sexual trajectories and higher acceptance of sexual practices formerly considered to be deviant, revealing that sexual morality among youth has acquired a more modern coniguration.

It was also found that, of the 35 professors who supervised dissertations and theses related to Food Service, only 15 were members of the research groups identified in the present study. This means that a significant number of researchers do not participate in research groups focused on this topic. On the other hand, it demonstrates that there is a great number of professors connected to research groups but who are not involved in Stricto Sensu graduate programs in Nutrition. The recent increase in the number of research groups may indicate an investment of the agents in order to, in the future, improve their scientific production which will enable them to teach graduate courses contributing to the professional training of professionals and to research carried out in graduate programs. At the same time, professors engaged in PPG seek to consolidate their research lines by publishing in international journals 20 .

growth and strengthening of these programs in recent years has been remarkable. Improvement of our Qualis position in the ield of Pharmacy is of fundamental relevance for the growth of the Journal. To accomplish this, we must set goals for growth and work hard to achieve them. In fact, we have already started it. The Editorial Board decided that, from January 2010, all manuscripts submitted for publication should be in English. Reafirming previous decisions, works that report antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of extracts without the identiication of the effect promoter(s) will not be considered. Moreover, the standards for publication will be improved and the Journal will have Section Editors, who will cooperate in the evaluation of submissions in their respective areas. We hope that our “h” factor at SCImago plataform (http://www.scimagojr.com/) will be properly evaluated. Also, we have the expectation that the Capes will reconsider our Qualis stratiication in order to value the journals of the ield that have been making the Brazilian research outputs known throughout world, particularly those resultant from our own post-grad programs.

edge are intrinsically inseparable, has particular resonance with regard to the issues of citizenship and the health in- equalities faced by vulnerable populations. Foucault explores in his book the “micro-powers” that control all areas of soci- ety beyond the action of political agents and governments. He argues that knowledge and power are not only insepa- rable but actually complement each other in the governing of social relations within institutions such as prisons, schools, work, and of course, medical institutions. In the context of clinical communication. For example, doctors are too often considered the sole knowledgeable experts, while patients are considered lay neophytes in relation to their health prob- lems. In this context, patient knowledge is often seen as in- complete or invalid. Patient narratives tend to be investigated by medical doctors mainly for identifying diagnostic catego- ries, the first step in clinical work. Consequently, patient lay knowledge is disregarded in the clinical interview, while cli- nician knowledge is considered the expert knowledge driving the interview. In turn, medical expertise relies largely on the knowledge produced by evidence-based medicine and posi- tivist science. The hegemony of medical knowledge in the clinical context stems, of course, from the power of medical institutions but also from the power positivist science holds in society. This hegemony all too often translates into patri- archal relations, which are expressed in clinical communica- tions with patients but also between health professionals of different disciplines.

Em busca da eficiência: visibilidade internacional da produção científica dos programas brasileiros de pós-graduação em saúde infantil e do adolescente entre 1998 e 2003

Governmental policies of health research funding in Bra- zil are mainly operationalized through three agencies with countrywide reach (the already cited CAPES, the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (Con- selho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico, CNPq), and the Studies and Projects Funding Agency (Finan- ciadora de Estudos e Projetos, FINEP), and through state foun- dations for research support. CAPES stands out among them, having a strong aim at organizing and planning the develop- ment of human resources at the graduate level. Its process of graduate program evaluation began in the late 1970s, but sig- nificant changes in methods and evaluation criteria were made from 1996 on, placing great emphasis on knowledge produc- tion, particularly on the number of published articles, inter- national visibility, and researchers’ individual performance. 17,20

In the past ten years this journal has printed 611 unpublished works. The increasing number of articles submitted for evaluation mirrors the advance of Brazilian Nursing in terms of the development of research as a strategy for the construction of knowledge and of a scientifically-based practice. The growing number of stricto sensu Graduate programs in Nursing in Brazil and the increasing use that nurses make of research results in their practice and formation are among the main factors behind the advancement of investigation in the area and stimulate the editors of scientific journals to seek excellence for their publications.

Municipal administration and corruption in the implementation of federal education programs

Municipal administration and corruption in the implementation of federal education programs

The studies that analyzed spending on construction works also concluded that management flaws are more frequent than corruption (Marin, Gama and Campelo, 2014; Rodrigues and Santos, 2015). Such result is very interesting because the spending with construction works — executed in Brazil mainly by private companies contracted by governments — is the most prone to irregulari- ties defined as corruption by Ferraz and Finan (2008:70): “irregularities related to fraud in public contracts, misuse of public funds and pricing”. In addition, recent analyses of the National Congress and the Federal Court of Auditors point out the fragility of government controls on spending with construction works (Ribeiro, 2012, 2014; Olivieri, 2016). That is, assumptions regarding the severity of corruption in the municipalities have been resized by the analyses based on monitoring which, it should be stressed, seek to identify irregularities.

These data demonstrate the alarming situ- ation of children and adolescents in the late 1980s, especially with regards to child labor, the institutionalizing practices of the Foundation for the Well-being of Minors (Fundação de Bem- Estar do Menor [FUNABEM]) - an organization with an assistentialist and repressive philosophy which removed children from their homes and placed them in institutions for “recovery” - and the violence and murder of children living on the streets. Brazilian society was deeply touched by these issues, and after organizing civil move- ments such as the “Diretas já” (”Direct [elec- tions] now”) and “Constituinte” (“Constituent”), which fought for direct presidential elections and a new constitution, respectively, began to vindicate the rights of children and adolescents. Over 200,000 signatures were gathered in sup- port of popular issues, and a letter of demands was drafted and signed by 1.4 million children. The two amendments known as “Child and Con- stituent” and “Children: a National Priority” gave rise to articles 227 and 228 of the Federal Constitution of 1988, and later, the ECA (Movi- mento Nacional de Meninos e Meninas de Rua [MNMMR], 1994).

At the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto College of Nursing (EERP-USP), the concepts were kept and/or raised and, currently, this institution offers two graduate programs, which were evaluated with grade 6 (the highest obtained so far by national Nursing graduate programs): the Fundamental Nursing program – which kept the grade obtained in the prior triennial evaluation – and Public Health Nursing, which rose from 5 to 6. The others (Psychiatric Nursing and Interunit Doctoral Program, developed by the University of São Paulo School of Nursing along with EERP-USP) kept their grades at 5, like in their prior evaluation. This excellent performance is a consequence of the advisors’ and students’ collective efforts, of the dedication and commitment of the program coordinators and of the Graduate Program Commission; of the institutional support, including the Ofice of the Pro-Rector of Graduate Studies of the University of São Paulo, among other contributive elements.
