23 SES 14 C, Educational Research at the Crossroads? What Journals of Education Can Tell Us About the Development of the Discipline
This paper presents the main findings of a systematic comparative assessment of educational research published in three academic journals over a 10-year publication period. The aim of our research was to devise an analysis in a “prototype” study, aiming at providing a panoramic overview of the scientific output in the field of education, through indexing and analysing research articles. The basic corpus consisted of three peer-review journals: the Revue Française de Pédagogie (RFP), the British Educational Research Journal (BERJ) and the Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research (SJER). The articles published in each of the three journals (between 1999 and 2009) were systematically incorporated into a bibliographic database and indexed based on the key-words of the Thesaurus for Education Systems in Europe (TESE), run by the Eurydice unit of the European Commission. This indexation allowed us to make comparisons between trends in educational research, some themes bearing witness to specific national features, while others testify common concerns, such as the curriculum and curriculum policies. We also identified several fields of research, which were specifically addressed in those journals: teacher training, parents and family, cognition and motivation, gender, mathematics, and international evaluation of students’ results.
