AbstractThis research note presents preliminary results from the analysis of a source of oral history with Brazilian physicists who were protagonists in Brazilian physics during the military regime (1964-1984). This source is still a work in progress. Fourteen physicists were already interviewed and the total figure should arrive to twenty-five. The research project from which this note is a result aims to produce a unified account of the conflicting processes (political authoritarianism and support to the scientific development) dealing with the changes these processes caused in the community of Brazilian physicists.
