Traditional knowledge, scientific knowledge and the relationship between gender and science are studied in the area of Science, Technology and Society (STS). In this thesis, these themes were united and the traditional knowledge was investigated through the scientific knowledge produced in PhD and master theses, analyzing both the scientific community and the traditional community that were investigated in the studies. This thesis is part of a research agenda initiated in the master's degree and has as contribution to update the information and the advancement of methodological and theoretical instruments on the subject. The objective is to analyze the scientific production of PhD and master theses on the traditional and scientific knowledge. Through a quantitative and qualitative approach and using bibliometric analysis with content analysis, two hundred and sixty (260) theses available in the Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations of the IBICT, defended between the years 2010 and 2015, are analyzed. Information about date of defense, affiliation, authorship, supervision and co-supervision, funding, citation and content are examined. The results show that the number of theses defended by women has increased; most of the defenses were from the University of Brasília, mainly of the Sustainable Development Program; the largest number of defenses was from the subject area of Environmental Sciences; there has been an increase in the number of research theses conducted without funding; field study the approach mostly used; the most frequently investigated group was indigenous people; finally, Environmental / Socio-environmental / Ecological was the most highlighted thematic category in the theses, mainly looking at the relation of the traditional communities with the environment in which they live, demonstrating the insertion of the social aspects of science into scientific productions. In addition, as an important output of this research, a novel methodology that can be used in other bibliometric studies has been developed. The results may help future studies that address traditional knowledge, considering that the books, periodicals and authors that are part of the body of research have been identified.
