MENDES, Aida Maria de Oliveira Cruz. Science classification, visibility of the different scientific domains and impact on scientific development. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2016, vol.serIV, n.10, pp.143-149. ISSN 0874-0283.

Background: Science classification is a very important working tool for the organization, evaluation and funding of research and development activities. Based on these ratings, it is possible to obtain data to support strategic decision-making on funding policies, considering criteria of productivity, equity in access, and relationship between investment and outcomes. Science classification systems have evolved over time following the individualization path itself of a particular branch of scientific knowledge and its ability to be recognized by the scientific and social community. Thus, science classification depends on both epistemological and cultural and political criteria. Objectives and Main topics under analysis: Reflection on the science classification in Portugal and suggestion of alternatives based on other experiences worldwide. Conclusion: Science classification is a system that reinforces itself, where more power and visibility generate more resources and greater visibility. For this reason, nursing must be recognized as a scientific area and fully develop its social mandate.

Palabras clave : nursing; classification; funding; evaluation.
