The human, social, technological and educational development of the current century requires more and more scientific research from an ethical and effective research practice. As a contribution to this, the objective of this study involves: de-signing didactic-methodological guidelines based on the development of scientific research and scientific-textual cons-truction, based on the characterization of the epistemic-referential dimension of the epistemic competence of the resear-cher. Characterizing this novel dimension from the five indicators that compose it: Methodological, Axiological, Praxiological, Epistemological and Ontological, allowed to reveal the “epistemic mapping” tool, which allows the researcher to guide the logic of the research process and the logic of the scientific text, which stands as a formative and operational response to the current paradigmatic diversity of research practice. In this sense, the “epistemic competence” of the researcher favors the argumentative epistemological coherence, so necessary in the development of studies that transcend due to their theoreti-cal-practical contribution, and therefore, their contribution to the development of investigations that guarantee consistency is validated. rationality and quality criteria, managing scientific tasks that compromise a high level of cognitive, emotional and volitional demand, and therefore, the deployment of higher levels of thought.
