Revista Española de Educación Comparada


The Revista Española de Educación Comparada (Spanish Journal of Comparative Education, REEC), came into being in the year 1995 with the mission of serving as the scientific mouthpiece for the research and work carried out by the educational comparativists integrated in the Sociedad Española de Educación Comparada (Spanish Society of Comparative Education, SEEC), who constitute its principal readers. The publication’s creation represented the realization of one of the primary scientific objectives expressed in articles 3 and 4 of the SEEC statutes, ratified in November of 1994. Since the founding of the journal, the Universidad Nacional de Educación Comparada (UNED) has provided editorial and infrastructure support for the REEC, assuming the role of co-editing institution. The essentially international nature of the discipline of Comparative Education along with the increasing affinity and overlapping of epistemological objectives and challenges of comparative academics at home and abroad – due to the phenomenon of globalization – have led to a decisive expansion of the initial objectives of the REEC, in terms of research and publishing, and of the publication’s target audience. As a result, this periodical does not focus solely or even preferentially on the analysis of comparative epistemology in the Spanish context, but rather it purports to study the construction of comparative knowledge on a European and world-wide scale. The REEC is therefore fully committed to welcoming studies by domestic and foreign researchers working in the comparative discipline, these researchers being recipients of our journal as well. While articles are occasionally published in French or Portuguese, the primary languages of the REEC are Spanish and English.   

The essential objective of the REEC is to contribute to the theoretical and practical development of the field of Comparative Education in a manner that is at once interdisciplinary, global, national and international. Its work focuses especially on the analytical analyses of epistemological developments in the complex comparativist science in our current era of globalization, governance, postmodernism and post-colonialism. The essential goal and ultimate aspiration of the academic and editorial work carried out by those involved in the REEC is the forging of a world society that may benefit from a democratized, inclusive, humanitarian and exacting education, one that achieves a balance between the constant technological innovations  of a connected society, on the one hand, and, on the other, the strength and solidity afforded by  a cultural wisdom accrued through tradition. It is also paramount that we find a balance between the demands of a global society and the as yet vital role of school cultures that are specifically national. The REEC wishes to offer its pages to, and invite contributions from, all those scholars who share these objectives and concerns and who would strive to perfect the theoretical and practical contributions that we can make to current world education and to a global society articulated around the ideas of solidarity, professionalism and morality.     

The REEC adheres to a proven editorial policy that is detailed in the Regulations of this journal. Some of its noteworthy elements are the joint efforts carried out by authors, editors and reviewers in assuring the smooth workings of the REEC; the editorial practice of the double-blind peer review; and a rigorous publishing ethic designed to detect and root out any possible editorial misconduct.
