The Higher Education Journal has gradually become a valuable instrument that promotes and enables to publish articles and enriches academic and scientific discussions inside and outside the Major University of San Andr??s. In September 2016, it came out for the first time; at present, it has a total of 9 volumes that are published regularly between September and March. In September 2019, our journal has been indexed to Scielo Bolivia (collection of electronic scientific journals in Bolivia) and Latindex (regional online information system for scientific journals in Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal). It meant another opportunity to place the publication of our article writers in the international context, who are currently striving to improve the quality for the consideration of avid readers. The purpose of the Higher Education Journal is to promote the discussion and theoretical-methodological development of education in its different dimensions, from the publication of research advances at a national and international level, prioritizing the promotion of national production.
