The objective of this paper is to develop an unpublished goal-analysis on franchising involving 61 Brazilian and international scientific papers published from 1998 to 2007 and published by Anpad and in related periodical in Proquest (Qualis A, B or C). Saint approached the following questions: how scientific research into franchises has developed; in which academic vehicles are they linked; the main themes that are dealt with; which institutions these authors are connected with; the participation of states and countries; the predominance of certain authors; the research methods used and the economic segments of application. The results show that Brazilian works are concentrated in Enanpad; the predominance of works on Entrepreneurship and Strategy, internationally, with focus in economic theories; most of the authors are connected to institutions in the south and south-east of Brazil and the USA; a strong predominance of the surveys and the application of the research in several sections of the economy.
