The results achieved in the censused base 2004 of the Directory of Research Groups/CNPq had identified the existence of 108 groups and 317 research lines. The analyses allowed to delineate the scientific activities of the research groups in History of the Education, its geographic and institutional distribution, the subjects of research, the standards of the spreading of results of the researches and the social relevance of the realized researches.
