Research in educational aspects is crucial in contemporary society due to the continuous scientific and social changes. Doctoral dissertations are a source of information on various patterns of educational research, as well as trends and preferred lines of scientific research. A bibliometric study of doctoral dissertations on education carried out in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia in the period 2010 to 2021 is presented. A total of 951 dissertations were analyzed using bibliometric techniques and network analysis. A large drop in doctoral production was observed in recent years, and the University of Granada emerges as the driving institution of educational research in Andalusia.
