Jurnal Kependidikan: Penelitian Inovasi Pembelajaran aka Jurnal Kependidikan  was initially published biannually (May & November) since 1975 and obtained its publication license in 1980, number 755 / P / SK / DITJEN PPG / STT / 1980, dated July 6, 1980, by name of JURNAL KEPENDIDIKAN IKIP YOGYAKARTA. Its early contents consisted of opinion articles, research results, and reviews. As of 1982, the journal gave priority to research-based articles; the name was then changed into JURNAL KEPENDIDIKAN (JK). This was chosen to reflect the contents that prioritized on results of educational research. The editorial team members of JK when it was first established were: Suyanto, Pujiati Suyata, Suryati Sidharto, Djohar, Sukamto, Suryanto, Sarbiran, and Sardjono.

In 1985, more varied articles from various universities were sent to the journal so that the focus of educational research was extended to non-educational fields, especially teaching materials that were taught at schools.

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

The Editorial Board meeting of 1995 decided that the journal would no longer accept non-educational research articles to be more focused and specific. In the following year, the non-educational research articles were eventually separated into JURNAL PENELITIAN IPTEKS DAN HUMANIORA (Now JURNAL PENELITIAN SAINTEK and JURNAL PENELITIAN HUMANIORA) published by Lembaga Penelitian IKIP YOGYAKARTA (now, the Institute for Research and Community Service). Then, since 2017 JK focuses more on articles related to learning innovation and does not accept non-empirical research articles (reviews) or opinio-based manuscripts so the scope is more specific and focused.
