The educological perspective is inclusive of scientific, praxiological, historical, and philosophical discourse about the educational process.

Volume 1, Number 2 covers historical and economic aspects of educology in five articles. Volume 2, Number 1 presents an editorial and six articles that relate educology to politics, society, economic conditions in Australia, culture, teaching, and science concepts. Volume 2, Number 2 contains an editorial and five articles focused on educology in relation to socio-cultural factors, democracy, effective schools, and testing and student attitudes about test formats.
