Journal History


Jurnal Kependidikan had initially been published since 1975 and obtained an STT in 1980, number 755 / P / SK / DITJEN PPG / STT / 1980, dated July 6, 1980 by name of JURNAL KEPENDIDIKAN IKIP YOGYAKARTA. At first, the contents of this journal consisted of ideas, research results, and description of research studies. As of 1982, the journal gave priority to research result based articles; the name was then  changed into JURNAL KEPENDIDIKAN (JK). The name was chosen to reflect the contents that prioritized on results of educational research.

In 1985, more varied articles from various universities were sent to the journal so that the focus of educational research was widen to include non-educational fields, especially teaching materials which were taught at schools. Furthermore, because the school education materials also become IKIP scope, the development of the journal foci and scopes was inevitable.

To enrich the reader with insights on a variety of research approaches and problems, since 1991 JK for each edition had inserted a special article focus on research approaches and methodologies. Similarly, to improve the quality of the publications, since 1980, the guidelines of JK had been changed three times.

In the Editorial Board meeting of 1995, it was decided that JK was no longer a journal containing non-educational research articles. It was taken to avoid the publication of journals that was potpourri. In 1996, the articles of non-educational research results eventually separated into JURNAL PENELITIAN IPTEKS DAN HUMANIORA (Now JURNAL PENELITIAN SAINTEK and JURNAL PENELITIAN HUMANIORA) published by Lembaga Penelitian IKIP YOGYAKARTA (now known as the Institute for Research and Community Service).

In addition, since 1977 JK had also appointed reviewers from other universities. This was done in order to improve the quality of the contents of the publications.

Here were the editorial team of JK when it was first established: Suyanto, M.Ed., Ph.D .; Dr. Pujiati Suyata, M. Pd .; Dra. Suryati Sidharto, M.A .; Prof. Dr. Djohar, M: S .; Sukamto, M.Sc., Ph.D; Suryanto, M.A., Ph.D .; Sarbiran, M.Ed., Ph.D., Prof. D. Sardjono.
