This paper aims to share the results of the assessment of scientific production related to the role of stakeholders in the framework of social responsibility; based on data mining from documents published in internationally recognized databases. The methodology consists of four stages: the first one is the selection of databases; the second one, prototyping the "search equation," by entering different combinations of keywords, as well as the definition of selection criteria in an observation window from 2011 to 2015. The third stage is the selection of items according to its relevance and timing, applying selection criteria previously defined in the study, and finally, the fourth stage is the analysis of information performed in the specialized software VantagePoint®. The results highlight the importance of the relationship between stakeholders and social responsibility.
