RESTREPO BOTERO, Juan Carlos; LONDONO ARDILA, Luis Felipe  and  GOMEZ CARDONA, Liliana María. Research in educative Psychology in Colombia during 2000-2010: analysis of groups A and B. sophia [online]. 2015, vol.11, n.1, pp.21-32. ISSN 1794-8932.

In 2012 the Research Group of Applied Psychology of Lasallista University Corporation, performed a bibliographic analysis of 415 scientific articles reported in Group LAC of research groups A1, and B, classified by Colciencias, in order to identify trends in Colombian scientific production of Psychology in general, and educative Psychology in particular during the term 2000-2010. The researchers selected those groups endorsed by universities running programs holding high quality accreditation awarded by the National Council of Accreditation, and included in the data base published by the Colombian Society of Faculties of Psychology (Ascofapsi), through the Observatory of Quality of Higher Education in Psychology in Colombia (2012). Among the most outstanding results on educative Psychology it was found that: 26,3% of analyzed groups coincides in researching on learning; 5,3% of such articles is written on learning; 43,1% performed research with students, and, that since 2004 there is a meaningful growth in production of educative Psychology. It is observed that publications on educative Psychology along years has moved from a fifth place (Guerrero and Jaraba 2010) to a second place as evidenced by this study, and as claimed by Perdomo et al (2003). Parting from results found, these groups are suggested, in addition, to study first infancy, school phenomena, and extra-school, that is, those not under school scenaries or Higher Education Institutions; to approach informal education and education for labor and human development.
