El aumento en oferta y matrículas de programas de docto­rado es un fenómeno global que demanda atención directa de aquellos involucrados. Esta investigación tuvo por objetivo comprender las percepciones que tiene la Universidad, sobre los procesos de formación en investigación y la supervisión en programas de doctorado. Se interpretaron los discursos de directores, supervisores y estudiantes de programas de doctorado. Los principales resultados son que la formación en investigación y los procesos de supervisión tienen un fuer­te componente motivacional y emocional, y la existencia de normas explícitas e implícitas del contexto científico que per­mean la formación de los futuros investigadores.
