Evaluation of postgraduate programmes: an incomplete project

Juremir Machado da Silva


This text discusses the criteria used for evaluating postgraduate programs in Brazil. The author deconstructs some of its main features, contradictions, and ambiguities. Based on the concept of “field” as presented by Bourdieu (1997), the author clarifies the network of interests woven within the scientific and academic spaces. Besides researchers, institutions, in particular those related to research funding within the context of post-graduation, are also involved in those networks of interests. In the end, the author leaves some suggestions to ameliorate present day evaluation system.
