Abstract : Higher education and research develop can not be develop without taking a look at the anteriority of work and the sharing of results of research. The practices required for this purpose, which are grouped under the informational practices label, are numerous and depend on many considerations. This thesis propose to analyze those of Senegalese researchers. The analyzes are based on the sensemaking model initially developed by Karl Weick and used by Brenda Dervin in information science and communication. In these analyzes, particular attention is paid to the question of social representations. Our approach also includes other models elaborated in information science (Tom Wilson, Marcia Bates, Tefko Saracevic, Peiling Wang). This holistic approach is validated researchers and information professionals in Senegal. The analyzes of speeches the various interviews as well as the observations carried out about the influence of social services and the lack of a real device who would organize and standardize the information-sharing practices of researchers. Claiming "action research", the thesis proposes recommendations from the results of the analyzes.
