Behavioral Finance, Bibliometric Study, Brazil


This study contributes to a preliminary survey of Brazilian production in Behavioral Finance (BF) as defined by events and periodicals of the Sociedade Brasileira de Finanças (SBFIN), Encontro da Associação Nacional de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa em Administração (ENANPAD), Revista de Administração de Empresas, Revista de Administração de Empresas eletrônica, Revista de Administração e Revista de Administração da Universidade de São Paulo selected from Qualis rankings A and B between 2001 and 2007. Study methodology is exploratory, bibliographical and documental emphasizing the subject phenomena documented. As a common denominator for research, we used the synthesis procedure from the coverage of the hypothesis of efficient markets, the choice rational theory and behavioral finance. Results indicated that 70% of the publication on scientific production about BF is concentrated in SBFIN and ENANPAD. Therefore growth of Behavioral Finance activity was not accompanied by the periodicals associated with greater methodological rigor, suggesting a need to improve publication quality in this domain.
