COPPARI, Norma et al. Beliefs about Science in Social and Natural Scientific Researchers in Mexico and Paraguay. Rev. Int. Investig. Cienc. Soc. [online]. 2020, vol.16, n.2, pp.193-215. ISSN 2226-4000.

A comparative and intercultural study between Mexico and Paraguay, on the perception of researchers in the Natural and Social sciences about their adherence to four scientific agreements (intelligibility of the world, critical attitude, methodological competence and open dissemination of results) when doing research. The sample was conformed by 183 scientists from Paraguay and 185 from Mexico, whom took the Sociologic Survey about Scientific Research (De la Lama, Del Castillo & De la Lama, 2013) Modified Version Chapter Paraguay (Coppari, 2015), which measured scientists proposed agreements, spontaneously or through assisted recall. Researchers from both countries recognize, in most cases, all four agreements, regardless of the sciences in which they work. There are no significant differences between both groups, except in rule number 2, where 95.6% of Paraguayan scientists and just 88.1% of Mexican scientists considered critical attitude as a ruler.
