Information is a key resource within the organization, as its ability to generate innovations and best management practices. Are necessary investments to generate information and knowledge to contribute to organizations and society. In this sense, the purpose of this article is to analyze the relationship between investment of the Coordenadoria de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES) in the stricto sensu academic scholarships to Brazilian academic publications, from 2000 to
... , from 2000 to 2012. For this was a study with exploratory and descriptive statistical analysis with the polynomial regression techniques and dispersion using secondary database. It was possible to verify empirical evidence through the coefficients of determination of statistical models. The results demonstrate that despite the CAPES data show steady increase in investment in the strict sense bags in Brazil in the period 2000 to 2012, there are no proportional increases in national scientific production in the same period. And they did not contribute effectively to the increase of the country's representation in the academic field before Latin America and the World. The final considerations highlight the key factors identified in the statistical analysis that lead to such conclusions. The study contributes to the theoretical field of studies that measure investments and innovation and helps shape applied to public resource managers. Future studies are suggest from observing other indicators in addition to research grants or analyze qualitatively the essence of academic productions effect through this funding.
