SAENZ, A. et al. Evaluation of violence and sportsmanship in sport: bibliometric analysis. CPD [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp.211-222. ISSN 1989-5879.

This study presents a bibliometric analysis of printed publications on evaluation tools in sportsmanship, aggresivity and violence in a professional sports context and at school age during 2013. Records from databases SportDiscus, PsycINFO, Psicodoc and Dialnet, as well as printed publications and reports from federations and sports institutions have been used. 530 documents have been analized, out of which 35 show evaluation tools. The obtained records were classified into 5 catagories: methods of assessment, constructs and social actors assessed, seasonal period and sports context. The results show that the most used tool was the survey (76.19%). Secondly, the tools analized allowed the evaluation of psychological variables related to sportsmanship (14.28%), anti-sportsmanship (28.57%) and both (57.14%). Thirdly, nearly all the tools are centred on the assessment of the sportsman (71.43%). Fourthly, most of them are able to be used at any one single moment (85.71%). Finally, many of the tools allow evaluation in both the professional and school setting (66.66%) or entirely in the school setting (33.33%).

Keywords : Bibliometric analysis; evaluation; aggressiveness; violence; sportsmanship; sport at school age.
