BETANCOURT BETHENCOURT, José A; FERNANDEZ FRANCH, Neyda; MIRABAL NAPOLES, Marjorie  y  LOSANO CASANOVA, Jorge. Exploration about quality research and the scientific production in Camagüey, Cuba. Rev Cubana Hig Epidemiol [online]. 2012, vol.50, n.3, pp.300-308. ISSN 1561-3003.

Introduction: there are problems in the quality of health research. This work is aimed to get a perspective from some professional point of view from the primary health care. Methods: a survey in eight health areas of Camagüey municipality was carried out in November 2011.The dimension of the answers was reduced by principal component- analysis technique (PCA). The results obtained were compared in each area with Kruskal-Wallis H non-parametric technique. All the analyses were performed using statistical package SPSS 19. Results: people interviewed and their answers were characterized in details. The survey was assessed as reliable as it was possible to group the answers in 6 constructs with more than 63% of the explained variation. The results showed that primary health care professionals in Camagüey municipality are experienced enough in this activity. PCA technique allowed reducing the dimension of the answers. The constructs found in all cases showed potential load to the quality of research and scientific production. Conclusions: the investigations need interdisciplinary approach. There is not enough statistic knowledge as well as English language. There is no enough knowledge about the national and international outlines of financings and grants for researching.

Palabras clave : investigation; scientific production; interdisciplinary research.
