The evaluation of scientific productivity is a reality of the Institutions of Higher Education and has been made from data extracted from worldwide consolidated databases especially the Web of Science. In Brazil, the Curriculum Lattes is a platform that brings together a broad set of data regarding the scientific career of Brazilian teachers. The present study evaluates the use of data extracted from Curriculum Lattes for the generation of bibliometric indicators, focusing on the evaluation of the scientific productivity of a Higher Education and Research Institution, Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar). For this, comparative bibliometric analyzes were performed, based on the data collection of UFSCar in the Web of Science and data from the Curriculum Lattes. For the extraction of the data through Curriculum Lattes was used the tool SyncLattes developed by the research group NIT/Materials, the data processing was done through Vantage Point software. As results, a set of comparative indicators on the scientific production of UFSCar was elaborated and analyzed from the data stored in the two databases. Based on the theoretical discussion and at analysis of results the conclusion is there was a huge total of data found in Curriculum Lattes and not at the Web of Science index, and they are completed and qualified enough to create bibliometric indicators, making Curriculum Lattes a valid database to evaluate Higher Education and Research Institutions. Thus, for studies focused on the elaboration of bibliometric indicators of an institution, it is recommended to use the Curriculum Lattes, combined with SyncLattes tool to extraction, in conjunction with the use of the Web of Science, to elaborate bibliometric studies of institutions Brazilian teaching and research.
