COPPARI, Norma; BALBUENA, Patricia; ORTIZ, Paola  and  BAGNOLI, Laura. Perception of Scientific Agreements of Natural and Social Researchers of Paraguay: A Qualitative Analysis. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2017, vol.13, n.2, pp.147-166. ISSN 2226-4000.

This research presents a qualitative analysis of four agreements (World’s intelligibility or studying reality as an object; acquiring a critical attitude; methodological aptitude; and open publication of the results), and other subjects approached. The sample was composed by N= 183 Paraguayan researchers, categorized by PRONII/CONACYT Paraguay in its 2011 and 2013 callings.97 of them accepted to be recorded while they were answering to the Survey on the Sociology of Scientific Research (De la Lama et al., 2013) Chapter Paraguay Version (Coppari, 2015), intended to ask about the agreements that natural and social sciences researchers follow when doing research. Results show evidence that most researchers accept the existence of implicit rules in scientific work. Disagreements between participants refer to the nature of those agreements, namely the first and last, especially between social scientists. Researcher’s personal words are highlighted beyond the numbers, to show their experiences in scientific work.

Keywords : scientists; scientific agreements; qualitative analysis; Paraguay.
