The purpose of the study was to determine the main definitions, perceptions and proposals of interdisciplinary formative research in the university field at the undergraduate level. Among the most used methods are: bibliographic exploration, selection criteria, data retrieval and evaluation of the quality of selected articles. In this sense, it was possible to obtain 25 definitions of formative research (Scopus base) and 16 in Scielo. From 41 studies analyzed, 36 of them facilitated the extraction of perceptions, mainly categorizing four main ideas: curricular policy, formative and investigative vision, investigative culture and research trainer. Likewise, in 10 articles of the total reviewed, proposals stood out, especially four experimental researches, oriented to improve scientific skills. In conclusion, formative research, from and for university classrooms, considered in the training of professionals for the different disciplines, becomes a fundamental strategy, as a learning method, useful in didactics, systematic preparation and orients the rethinking of university curricula; highlighting its transversal nature and interdisciplinary character in order to promote research skills and the training of researchers according to the graduate profile; finally, to respond to the problems and emerging needs of the surrounding community.
