About the Journal

The International Journal of Sociology of Education (known by its acronym RISE) is a scientific journal of the Editorial Hipatia that publishes technical articles and original research results from the field of education with different methodological approaches in order to provide specific scientific advances in the socio-educational field. In this sense, RISE will publish disciplinary and interdisciplinary works related to the most relevant theories and educational research developed from a social perspective that provide elements that contribute fundamentally to social transformation and overcoming social inequalities from education.

This scientific journal arises from the need to respond to the excessive determinism and dogmatism with which educational issues have been treated since the sociology of the reproductive role of education in society. The RISE aims to analyze not only in a descriptive way the socio-educational elements that reproduce social inequalities and even increase them, but also the models, variables, scientific evidence and educational actions that affect social change and the overcoming of inequalities. In short, RISE aims to be an international space for debate and criticism through the presentation of theoretical and practical contributions from the sociological field that can favor the improvement of our societies through education. The journal is aimed primarily at scientific and research staff and other key actors who wish to keep abreast of the latest developments in the sociology of education. It is a quarterly electronic publication that appears in the months of February, July and October. Papers can be publsihed in English or Spanish.
