There is evidence of the existence of both bullying and cyberbullying in the university environment. The aim of this study is to analyse the differences between cyberbullying roles (target, perpetrator, and bystander) according to sociodemographic and academic variables (sex, age, origin, level of studies, and faculty). The participants were 765 young students (72.9 % women) from a university of the southeast of Spain (83.7 % undergraduate degree, 15.2 % Master’s degree, and 1.1 % other studies) from different faculties. The Questionnaire on Harassment among University Students
tool was used. The results of the study determined that women, people aged under 20, undergraduate degree students, and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Health Sciences students obtained higher values in the sub-scales evaluated. Among the roles of those involved, bystanders stood out, followed by perpetrators and victims. Regression analysis showed a relationship between being the target, perpetrator, and/or bystander of cyberbullying. The study will make it possible to focus on those sociodemographic variables that turned out to be significant as well as the relationship between
the cyberbullying roles in the face of prevention and intervention programs for each of the roles. The university context must assume the importance of promoting coexistence and university welfare. The involvement of the entire
educational community is also relevant.

The aim of this work is to analyse the influence of protective and/or judicial measures on the transit to prison of young women who have been through these situations as minors, starting by identifying risk factors associated with the process. Consequently, it provides new verified benchmarks for intervention with the population of young women in prison. To this end, qualitative and quantitative methods are used with a sample of 599 female inmates from 42 Spanish prisons, to whom 538 surveys and 61 interviews were applied. Three subsamples were selected: protection centres (n = 60); foster care (n = 36), and judicial measures (n = 72). A descriptive and interpretative study was carried out using frequency analysis, contingency tables, independence tests, and measures of association. The results show that 20.3 % of young women in prison have a prior history of institutionalisation in protective measures and 13.4 % with judicial measures. The main risk factors identified are: low educational levels (69.4 % below secondary education), environments with family members or partners in prison (between 48 % and 63.2 %), addictions (drugs and alcohol), either personal or affecting family members (over 60 %), and a significant relationship between young people who experienced judicial measures as minors having made reports of abuse. In the discussion and conclusions, growth in criminal behaviour by young people, especially women, is evident. Regarding the group studied, the low valuation of their time in protection centres and judicial measures by the imprisoned women, the difficulty of their family and affective background, and their worryingly low levels of education are striking. These data support the bases for evaluating the early impact on processes of transit towards prison and the options for socio-educational intervention aimed at reintegration and inclusion.

The present article analyses how cultivation of creativity underpins the possibility of rational dialogue with people who have different cultural origins by confirming the essentially productive character of human beings and contemplating creativity as a human dimension with intrinsic value, linked to the full realisation of the individual’s personality. The phenomenon of creativity is examined as an event that —sometimes dramatically— extracts the subject from the cultural world of mediations formulated within her own tradition that she usually inhabits, thus revealing to her a transcultural reality that manifests itself clearly. Recognising this original reality —which goes beyond the signifies constructed by different cultural traditions and from which creative action occurs— is the starting point for a true dialogue between cultures that enables a process of cultural critique, in other words, an examination of the validity of the products or objectivities of one’s own culture and the cultures of others.

The American Journal of Education (AJE) is one of 11 core journals identified in the field of education and publishes new research across abroad range of educational disciplines. Located at Penn State, the journal is supported by associate editors from around the nation as well as an advisory board of senior scholars. The journal also supports an online forum (AJE Forum) that is managed by the student editorial board. The major issue facing the journal is how to effectively disseminate peer-reviewed research to a broad audience that includes administrators, policy makers, reform advocates and educators. Given the limitations of university resources, the journal has experimented with new ways to disseminate information about its articles via social media and continues to assess how best to monitor the impact of journal articles in academic and policy contexts.
