Revista Española de Educación Comparada


The Spanish Journal of Comparative Education (Revista Española de Educación Comparada, REEC), 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 displays a regularity of two volumes per year. The REEC includes a number of sections, among which its Monographic section is particularly relevant. This section represents the main part of each volume, and it is devoted to a specific theme, particularly relevant to the field of Comparative Education in each contemporary moment. Apart from the Monographic section, the REEC displays in its structure  a second section named Analysis and Researches, in which they have space those articles which, without a direct thematic relation with the Monographic section, deserve to be included in the journal, due to their theoretical novelty or relevance. In addition to these two sections, which occupy the most part of the extension of the journal, in some volumes there are two more sections. One of them is devoted to the (basically legislative) documentation on the educational reforms that are being approved in the different countries. The fourth section is consecrated to the critical review of bibliographic novelties, which aims to reflect the most recent publications in the field of Comparative Education in the moment of publication of each volume of the Journal.

The REEC is jointly published and edited by the UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia) and by the SEEC. 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.
