This paper has the aim to take stock of the scientific field concerning the Structural Approach of Social Representations developed in more than 50 years by conducting a meta-theoretical analysis (de Rosa, 1994) of the literature on Social Representations, mapping its development, the related research methods, the thematic areas and their impact on the various applied fields within the multi-generational community of scientists and across different geo-cultural contexts. We analysed journal articles, book chapters, conference presentations, theses, manuscripts or stand-alone documents that used this approach. These papers were retrieved from different sources such as online journals, papers published online by the authors, paper format of the publications that we scanned and analyzed, along with the already gathered publications during the 20 years of work of prof. de Rosa. The analysis of the 1025 publications using Structural Approach of SR was conducted using the Grid for Meta-theoretical Analysis developed by de Rosa (1994) in order to gather the data, followed by the analyses done with Iramuteq Software (for the abstracts and key-words), with Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (for descriptive statistics), with Tableau Software (for visualizing the data) and with R Software (for Hierarchical Clustering on Principal Components). The results proved a great spreading of the work concerning Structural Approach of SR all over the world, being “a multicultural, multi-language and multi-generational enterprise” (de Rosa, 2009) that has continuously developed since Abric`s thesis (1976) and present, both theoretically, as well as methodologically.
