The objectives of this research were, on the one hand, to measure and to quantify the scientific production of teachers and researchers of the School of Languages ​​of the National University of Cordoba between 2008 and 2011; and, on the other hand, to qualitatively analyse and to interpret scientific production within a critical hermeneutical approach. The research was exploratory-descriptive, and was carried out through a mixed methodological approach, quantitative and qualitative. Among the findings, it can be mentioned that the scientific field of the institution is in a moment of self-awareness and reflexivity, that there is a predominance of a professional university model that is in conflict with the production model of scientific knowledge, and that scientific-academic university policies have an impact on the scientific field of the School. There were also several observable issues, namely the academic transformation of the teaching role into teacher-researcher; the absence of a strategic policy of priority areas, the existence of a genuine place for research (infrastructural, academic, economic); the detection of closed groups as "invisible colleges" or "scientific schools" organized around "insular research projects"; and the personalization of the areas and lines of research according to the historical process of the scientific field.

Key words: scientific production, publication, scientific knowledge, National University of Cordoba, Faculty of Languages.
