After the first review of the results and refinement of the search, 14 full papers were selected and were used as the study sample. Results.

The less frequent items in the papers were: Theoretical reference (14.3%), research question (35.7%), assumptions (42.8%) and limits (14.3%). The updated references (92.8%), justification and objectives were present in 100% of the studies. Conclusion. Brazilian scientific publications about user satisfaction are structurally well articulated, however it is necessary a greater detailing of the methodology and the insertion of some requirements considered optional so the published content is not questioned or discredit.
