English abstract

The studies on ethics in Knowledge Organization are in constant development. An effective way of verifying their importance as a research subject is to examine their representation in databases. The present paper builds upon previous research developed by Martínez-Ávila et al. (2015) and analyzes the literature on the topic that is indexed by two databases widely used in Library & Information Science: KO Literature and Scopus. Our search for the terms "ethics" and "ethical" retrieved a total of 54 articles. Among the result we highlight the ISKO journal Knowledge Organization journal as the most frequent source and a group of 11 authors that stand out as the most productive ones. We also conducted a content analysis to identify the ethical values that are present in the corpus, the methodologies and theories that are used in the papers, and the main knowledge organization processes and tools of knowledge that object of research. In conclusion, we point out the KO Literature database as an effective database for the retrieval of documents on this topic, although still presenting some shortcomings.

Os estudos éticos sobre Organização do Conhecimento estão em constante desenvolvimento e uma forma de verificar sua importância como temática de pesquisa, é examinando sua representação em bases de dados utilizadas na área. A presente pesquisa baseou-se em pesquisa anterior, desenvolvida por Martínez-Ávila et al. (2015) e utilizou duas bases de dados de uso na Ciência da Informação – KO Literature e Scopus – para analisar a recuperação de artigos por meio dos termos ethics e ethical. O corpus gerou um total de 54 artigos, em que foi possível evidenciar o periódico da ISKO Knowledge Organization como fonte que mais publica sobre o tema e um grupo de 11 autores que se destacam na produção da temática. Foi realizada ainda uma análise de conteúdo, de maneira a identificar os valores éticos mais trabalhados pelo corpus, as metodologias e teorias utilizadas e ainda, os principais processos e ferramentas de organização do conhecimento que foram objeto de pesquisa. Como conclusão, destacou-se que a base KO Literature possui um alto nível de recuperação de documentos nessa temática, mas que ainda apresenta algumas barreiras em sua utilização.
