CANALES SERRANO, Antonio Francisco  and  GOMEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Amparo. The Francoist purge of the Board for Advanced Studies and Scientific Research (JAE): A quantitative approach. Dynamis [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.2, pp.459-488. ISSN 2340-7948.

This article aims to provide an overall quantification of the purge of research staff of the Board for Advanced Studies and Scientific Research (JAE) conducted by the Franco Regime. To this end, the names of prewar researcher Contents staff were gathered from JAE payrolls immediately before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War and information on their employment in the postwar period was then systematically investigated. We found that a very major purge was conducted of JAE research staff, with more than 40% of them being expelled, and that researchers in leadership positions were especially targeted.

Keywords : purge; Franco regime; JAE; science and dictatorship; science policy.
