Aires is a biannual scientific journal which aims to disseminate advances and research proposals around education in general, and more specifically in Secondary Education. It is aimed at researchers, professionals and students interested in improving educational processes and systems.

Brief history

This journal began as ESRIIE (Secondary Education: Journal of Educational Research and Innovation) in 2011 arising from the Teacher Training Master at the University of Granada (Máster de Formación de Profesorado de Educación Secundaria Obligatoria y Bachillerato, Formación Profesional y Enseñanza de Idiomas de la Universidad de Granada), as a means to give visibility to high quality proposals made by the students, who were particularly interesting, innovative and posed a significant contribution.

The small team that started the project was comprised by Antonio Moreno Verdejo, Alberto Guillen Perales, Samuel Romero Garcia, Zoraida Callejas Carrión and Belén Prados Suárez and led by José Gutiérrez Pérez. In the first stage of this exciting project, it was driven by Alberto and Samuel, whose efforts gave life to the journal. With an ever wider audience, it evolved to also host papers subject to a review process, not only by students, but also by professionals in the field of education, both researchers and teachers.

This led to its current format as AIRES (Advances in Research and Innovation – Review of Secondary Education), with a new editorial team. The magazine has an annual volume with two numbers, published in November and May. The general structure of the numbers is 5% of invited papers, 50% of articles submitted to a peer review process by experts in the field, and 45% selected items being the best proposals of the students of the Master of Teacher Teaching, reviewed within the Master.

AIRES is therefore an ambitious publication that works to increase its quality and impact, while keeping its initial spirit: to foster commitment and innovative research in the future professionals of education.


AIRES has a highly multidisciplinary nature, allowing for contributions on any subject related to secondary education, with the aim of becoming a forum for communication and exchange of ideas that enrich this area from various perspectives.
