Abstract

Internationalization is becoming increasingly important for the Brazilian academy and for the Administration area in particular. To understand which institutional practices influence the international insertion of our researchers, we analyzed 172 questionnaires with data from researchers from Graduate Programs in 17 states at the most important institutions of the country. Despite the data collection focused on a specific segment of the Administration area, researchers in Information Administration (ADI), the results obtained illustrate the behavior of the entire Administration field, since this segment is subject to the same incentive programs as its colleagues from other sub-areas. For these researchers, doctorate abroad, complete or sandwich, is the main element that explains the possibility of international publication. The result of the study presented in this article also points out that researchers do not have access to what they consider the most relevant incentive mechanisms to reach a higher level of internationalization. From the data analysis, it is possible to note that these respondents understand that the incentive models in their institutions need adjustments to better include the country in the global innovation system.
