LEON RODRIGUEZ, Glendi; MENESES PLACERES, Grizly; GONZALEZ PEREZ, Liliana  and  PERALTA GONZALEZ, María Josefa. The postgraduate in the iSchool movement in North America, Asia Pacific and Europe. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.1, e1831.  Epub Mar 01, 2021. ISSN 2307-2113.

The present study aimed to characterize the graduate courses of the iSchools Movement in North America, Asia Pacific and Europe. The theoretical and conceptual aspects of postgraduate studies are enunciated, as well as the genesis and development of the iSchools movement. The quantitative approach is used, supported by the content analysis method and the documentary analysis technique to analyze the type, modality, duration, evaluation and content of postgraduate courses in the iSchools movement. The semantic fields of the Docutes were consulted for the identification of the main contents present in the postgraduate programs. Among the main results, master's degrees were identified as the most frequent postgraduate typology. The full-time modality was the most used by the three geographical regions. The types of evaluation with the highest amount were theses. The most relevant contents in the three continental chapters are associated with the semantic fields "Information Systems" and "Information representation and retrieval".

Keywords : iSchools Movement; postgraduate; information sciences.
