The Spanish Journal of Comparative Education (Revista Española de Educación Comparada-R.E.E.C.) was founded in  1995.  The main aim of the R.E.E.C. is to communicate and spread the scientific work of the members of the S.E.E.C.  The journal also welcomes contributions of all researchers – from Spain and abroad – that would like to disseminate the results of their recent studies or researches.

The R.E.E.C. is published once a year.  The journal has permanent sections: the monograph, which is the main part of each issue, is dedicated to an specific topic of relevance for Comparative Education. Besides, there is a section of  ‘Studies and Research’, where relevant articles are included even though they do not relate directly with the monograph.  These two are the most extensive parts of the Journal.  The third section of the R.E.E.C. is basically dedicated to legislative documentation about educational reforms in different countries, and the forth one presents critical reviews of the new publications in the field of Comparative Education. 

The R.E.E.C. is edited jointly by the National University of Distance Education (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia-UNED) and the S.E.E.C, and it is supported by the Spanish University Departments more interested in Comparative Education.  The R.E.E.C. hopes to be useful for the development of this field of scientific study, which is interdisciplinary in many of its aspects.  It also hopes to offer better knowledge about the present educational situation among Spanish professionals, in a world where interrelations are each time more obvious and where mutual knowledge is essential.  

The R.E.E.C. welcomes the contributions of all those who, by sharing their concerns, are willing to open wider horizons  in  Spain  to international and comparative studies.
