Abstract
In the last years, the academic body seems to have exceeded the saturation point of the employment structure. This situation has led to an increase in professional competitiveness that affects the practices of communication research. Through the longitudinal quantitative analysis of public financing, academic personnel employment, and the scientific production in communication –explained by the development in the number of papers, the methodological approach and its specialization–, we interpret the effects of the current paradigm of this discipline, characterized by the stagnation of the investment in science, labor temporality and the numerical increase of articles and researchers.
