This paper reviews and analyzes studies concerning measurement uncertainty, examining 114 papers published between 2004 and 2010 in the following international journals: IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, Measurement, Flow Measurement and Instrumentation, and Precision Engineering. The papers were classified according to six different approaches identified during the research and six different methods of calculating uncertainty used by the authors of the researched articles. This paper provides a short summary of the state of the art of measurement uncertainty, analyzes the research scenario on the theme, and, finally, brings suggestions on future work based on the analysis.
