En este estudio se analizan las investigaciones sobre los aspectos éticos, sociales y medioambientales publicadas en las revistas españolas en el período 2004-2012. Las principales áreas de ocupación de los investigadores españoles son el análisis de las prácticas nacionales, la divulgación externa, los estudios de actitud y los diferentes marcos teóricos. Asimismo, encontramos alentadores cambios en los enfoques metodológicos seguidos, recurriendo con más énfasis a la investigación empírica mediante la realización de análisis de campo y de caso, a la vez que el análisis de las diferentes relaciones estadísticas a partir de encuestas y análisis de contenido, aunque sin los rasgos de colaboración e interactividad propios de las comunidades dinámicas e innovadoras en la producción de conocimiento. Constatamos la dificultad encontrada para publicar en las revistas españolas y, más aún, para generar investigación social y medioambiental crítica. / This study analyses the social and environmental research published in Spanish journals between 2004 and 2012. The main areas of concern of the Spanish researcher are analysis of Spanish practices, external publication, attitude studies and the different theoretical frameworks. There are also encouraging changes in the methodological approaches used, placing greater importance on empirical research with the conducting of field and case studies, at the same time as analysis of different statistical relationships, from interviews and content analysis, although without the features of cooperation and interactivity typical of dynamic, and innovative knowledge production communities. There appears to be some difficulty in getting published in Spanish journals, and generating critical social and environmental research is even harder.
