FLORES-MARISCAL, Juan Roberto Joel. The Evolution of Literature on the State of the Art of Political Science in Mexico (1947-2015). Another Perspective on the Discipline's Development Process. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2016, vol.61, n.227, pp.55-101. ISSN 0185-1918.

This article presents an analysis of the development of political science in Mexico and its contemporary characteristics; but instead of doing it through a traditional historical reconstruction, it reviews this process based on a metanalysis. The simple narrative of the evolution of literature allows conceiving its development and the moments of qualitative change in the discipline regarding its institu-tionalization, the definition of its field and the authors' profiles. The analysis of the existing literature reflects that the disciplines contour has gone through three main periods: the initial stage, that runs from 1947 through the 1960s, and includes the establishment of institutions and of publication resources; the maturation stage during the 80s and 90s, which shows an increase in titles as well as a diversification of authors and perspectives; and finally, the contemporary moment, which began at the turn of the century, characterized by a research focus shared by the authors, a unified view of the discipline, and the inclusion of the local production in the framework of international debates.
