Focus and Scope

The Spanish Journal of Comparative Education (Revista Española de Educación ComparadaREEC), was created in 1995 with the aim and vocation of serving as scientific publication of the members of the Spanish Society of Comparative Education (Sociedad Española de Educación Comparada, SEEC). The REEC is, nevertheless, naturally widely open to the contributions of all those comparatists, Spanish or foreign, that wish to diffuse the results of their most recent analysis and researches. The REEC trusts in serving and contributing to the development of this scientific interdisciplinary area and aims to contribute to the better knowledge by the Spanish professional pedagogues, of the educational realities which surround us, in a world increasingly global in which mutual knowledge is ever more essential. The REEC offers its pages and invites to contribute on them to all those that, sharing its curiosities, are indeed concerned about the opening in Spain an increasing wider horizon to the comparative and international analysis. 

The Spanish Journal of Comparative Education (Revista Española de Educación Comparada, REEC) publishes articles of original researches which analyze several themes within the scope of the discipline of Comparative and International Education. The Revista Española de Educación Comparada (REEC) publishes articles in its Monographic Section and also in its Section of Analysis and Researches. The Journal also has two brief sections of Documents and of Book Reviews. The articles to be held to the Monographic Section will have an extension between 7.000 and 10.000 words (summary, abstract, notes and bibliography included). Those articles to be presented to the Analysis and Researches section and to that of Documents will have an extension between 3.000 and 7.000 words (Summary, abstract, notes and bibliography included). Book reviews will have an extension between 500 and 1.000 words. The REEC has certain templates at the disposal of authors for the writing and elaboration of articles for the Monographic Section and for those of Analysis and Researches, and Documents.

Peer Review Process

The Revista Española de Educación Comparada, REEC, evaluates all original articles submitted to its Editorial Board, by means of the peer review process.

All reviewers have at their disposal certain public assessment criteria in this platform.

The acceptance or refusal of each work will be based in a motivated decision in accordance to the argument exposed by these reviewers. The criteria which orient the formal revision of the manuscripts received, and the criteria proposed for the assessment of the content by the external reviewers can be consulted in the revised forms created in that section.
