Basic information

PERSPECTIVA EDUCACIONAL(PE) is an interdisciplinary journal that receives research and theoretical articles on educational problems at various levels (Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle, and Secondary School, and Higher Education) and modalities of the system, tending to expand frontiers of knowledge in education. To that end, the journal focuses on five lines of research: Curriculum and Evaluation; Teaching and Learning for the co-construction of knowledge; Culture, Policy and Leadership of educational organizations; Inclusion, citizenship and diversity; and Teacher Education.

PERSPECTIVA EDUCACIONAL has periodically published since 1980 until 2007. This process was paused with the purpose of transform it into a new format, allowing a greater visibility and coverage, nationally and internationally. As a consequence, our journal reappears in November 2010 with renewed, online publication, providing an easier way to review the articles and establishing a specialized mean of dissemination about pre- and in-service teacher education.

This journal only receives original papers without being simultaneously sent to other journals. Until 2016, two annual issues were published, in January (31) and June (30). Since 2017, starts the publication of three issues per year, in the months of January (31), June (30) and October (31).

The journal is intended for researchers, teachers, and professionals in the field of education. This contributes to: the development of teacher's training processes, the proposal of new lines of thought, pursuing the exchange of investigation results and the discussion of ideas in the field of education. In addition to the above, this journal aims mainly to the initial and continual teacher's training process.
