Abstract:

The main purpose of this research contrasts the characteristics and trends of comparative education with other research fields on education in developing countries. This research aims to locate comparative education in the whole Japanese educational research in developing countries. Therefore, we analyzed the major articles on education in developing countries that appeared in various academic journals in Japan. Thirteen journals were reviewed in our research. Among them, three are from the field of development studies, four are from the field of educational and pedagogic studies and the rest six are from the field of area studies. The total number of reviewed articles is over 250. The target time period of articles is from 1990 to the latest available.
In the last two decades, education development research has gradually taken one of the most important positions in comparative education research in Japan. Therefore, we have adopted some classification items concerning with educational development in addition to the original items of classifying comparative education. Some examples of classification items we adopted are: is the target of the article internal efficiency or external efficiency? Is the purpose of the article to contribute to expanding access of education, quality of education or management of education? Is the characteristic of the article academically driven or mission driven? By analyzing these items, our research is prospecting not only to find out the characteristics of Japanese education research in developing countries, but also to contribute to bridging between various academic approaches for this important research agenda.
