Comparative Education beyond REEC: bibliometric analysis of the discipline in the five related Spanish journals with most impact between 1995 and 2014

Gabriel Álvarez López


This investigation constists of a bibliometric study that aims to analyse the scientific production within the field of Comparative Education in five specialized Spanish journals. The analysis will allow us to identify the present state of the discipline, on the basis of factors such as the published articles, topics, authors, geographical or institutional background, or number or quotations from the said publication. There have been 285 issues analysed from the selected journals, and a total of 155 articles have been extracted out of more than 300 authors coming from over 15 countries and 4 continents. The article ends with a discussion upon the strength of the discipline as well as the challenges that it confronts from the point of view of the scientific production.
