Revue des sciences de l’éducation

Managing editor(s): Monique Noël-Gaudreault / Editor(s): Gilles Raîche


The Revue des sciences de l'éducation has been in existence since 1974. It was founded by the Francophone association deans and deans, directors of departments and faculties of education. Its aim is to support and stimulate the dissemination of research in the different disciplines of education, in particular in didactics, pedagogy, school administration and measurement and evaluation. It is also important to note that over the years, the different paradigms present in the sciences of education have tinted the plurality of published articles. The methodological rigor of published research is an important criterion in the peer review process. However, no methodology is favored over another. Thus, both the research conducted with qualitative data and research conducted with quantitative data are published in the Journal. Published in French and only in digital format, three issues are published each year in January, July and September. Although produced in Canada, authors from different countries regularly publish articles. Consequently, the Revue des sciences de l'éducation is an internationally recognized journal. Currently, the Revue des sciences de l'éducation is indexed in the Canadian Association of Scholarly Journals, in Érudit, in Francis, INIST, Persée and in Repère.
