The objective of this research was to indicate the available scientific evidence on the attitude towards research, based on the systematic review of relevant articles in the scientific literature. From a total of 108 initial references detected, 09 researches were selected which fulfilled the defined quality and selection criteria. The systematic analysis of these researches seems to indicate that 50% of the research population has a favorable attitude towards research, 41.7% shows an unfavorable attitude and only 8.3% moderately favorable. Likewise, in the case of the components, the cognitive component shows a positive category with 35.7%, while the affective component has a positive category with 21.4% compared to the negative category, which is 14.2%. While the behavioral component shows a positive category with 21.4% in relation to the negative category that presented 7.1%. This refers to the need for motivation and use of strategies by teachers of research courses to promote the attitude towards research in undergraduated and graduated students.
