The research carried out with the CNPq Research Groups Directory rescued the research groups in Environmental Communication in Brazil, which were categorized based on numerous factors (date of foundation, constitution, institutional links, lines of research and profile of the group leaders , its training and production in the area).

by Krystal Urbano, Thaiane Oliveira, Simone Evangelista and Luisa Massarani

In this article, we carry out a bibliometric analysis of studies carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean on environmental disinformation. Our corpus consisted of 51 articles, identified in the Scopus, Web of Science, Dimensions and Scielo databases. The results show continued growth in the production of scientific articles on misinformation and the environment after 2016, with climate change as a recurring theme. They also point to an increase in interest in the topic in the area of Communication & Information.
