Focus and Scope

Space and Time are two variables which, to a large extent, determine reality, make a mark on all its aspects, condition the opportunities and paths of people and societies, as well as those of thought, science, technology and many other manifestations of Reason, Freedom and Utopia. Education, a genuinely human phenomenon, is no stranger to such influences: it is a past and a present factor which is both conditioning and conditioned over the course of history and the present.

Espacio, Tiempo y Educación is an open access, free and independent scientific journal, with a six-monthly periodicity (two issues every year) published by FahrenHouse (Salamanca, Spain). The main object of the journal consists in publishing researches, studies and critical essays about the History of Education, in any space and time, adopting theoretical, philosophical and methodological perspectives. Generally the structure of each number is composed by editorial, monographic, studies and interview. All items received by Espacio, Tiempo y Educación for the sections “Monographic” and “Studies” are submitted to the double blind peer review external evaluation process. Espacio, Tiempo y Educación accepts articles in different languages as Spanish, English, Italian and Portuguese (more information in “Guidelines for the Authors”).

Espacio, Tiempo y Educación addresses mainly researchers, scholars and academics in the field of the History of Education, as well as other free and independent people who care about issues of thought, culture, society and education in a historical perspective and who are willing to debate their policies and researches with others.

Peer Review Process

The Editors and Editorial Board of Espacio, Tiempo y Educación will review the studies, essays and pieces of research and submit them to an external evaluation.

The review and evaluation system for every piece of work will be carried out by means of blind peering or double-blind. Outside the Editorial Board, two experts in the field of study to be evaluated will check each study, essay or research and generate a detailed report based on criteria of scientific quality. In case of discrepancy, a third expert will settle the disagreement.

  • The studies, pieces of research and essays sent for evaluation whose authorship corresponds to any of the members of the Editorial Board, whatever position they hold, will be under the judgment of five experts in the field of study to be evaluated outside the Editorial Board, keeping the identity of both authors and informants absolutely secret. In that case, at least four experts will be required to agree.

Those who would like to apply for a position as an external reviewer will be allowed to do it by using the section devoted to such purpose, by ticking the box Revisor/a when signing in, or simply by contacting the journal’s Editor (jlhhuerta@mac.com).

  • When accepting their position, evaluators will automatically become part of COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.
  • External reviewers will receive a certificate of their work at the end of it, taking for granted that they perform their task according to the previously established requirements and guidelines and their report is submitted in a timely manner.
  • Reviewers will not accept any economic compensation in return for their reviewed articles.                              

Decisions about acceptance, rejection or change about the pieces of work received, based on the above-mentioned reports from external reviewers, will be announced to their authors within 180 days. In case the acceptance of a study, essay or research depends on the amendments suggested by the external reviewers, its author will be required to improve the original text. Once changes are introduced, the amended article will be submitted again to be evaluated by the Editorial Board.

The accepted originals will be identified by means of a DOI code and published in the first issue containing enough pages. Editors reserve their right to publish them.

Every study, research or essay accepted for publishing will be checked by copyeditors, who will make the appropriate comments on them.

The correction of proofs will be carried out by the authors themselves within the time set by the Editorial Board. In case authors do not reply before the deadline, editors will assume such task but always taking the originals as their reference.

Authors requiring a certificate of article acceptance will receive a provisional document signed by the journal’s Editor via email, valid until their articles are definitely published.

Espacio, Tiempo y Educación is not responsible for the authors’ ideas, opinions and styles, although language accuracy and correction are always insisted on.
