This paper analyzes a total of 198 doctoral theses defended by Span-ish universities between 1990 and 2015 with the descriptors “History of education” from the teseo database of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. Four groups of variables have been considered: the national or local character, the period studied and its duration; the descriptors; the field from which the thesis has been done; and institutional factors. The results show important changes in some of the variables, which explain trends in research and the academic field of higher education.
