How to publish in this journal


Revista de Investigación Educativa (RIE) is distinguished for its general profile of an international nature and its openness to society. RIE is useful for the scientific community and particularly for any professional from an educational field with an interest in pedagogical research. This journal intends to spread empirical research papers which carry out a synthesis-review of a topic, methodological proposals, etc. The publication of scientific work in the following sections will be considered and the journal would be open to accept and publish quality papers focused on educational research. Papers which describe its methodology in a strict and clear way will have preference. For the acceptance of an article in the RIE journal, the research must be of general interest, as well as generalizable. This implies that the sample must seek representativeness (whether quantitative or qualitative studies) or a wide variability of essential elements for its generalization (cases, situations, ...), which excludes experiences and case studies (except in very extraordinary conditions, which implies a clear and significant innovation - conceptual, procedural, etc.).

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.


The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
