The study of doctoral theses allows, as Repiso et al. (2011) indicated, to know the scientific evolution of an area of knowledge and identify the main characters and relationships between them.

In recent years the research on inclusive education has reached a considerable boom boosted, among other aspects, by a new normative framework that guarantees the use of this new terminology together with others used up to the moment as integrative education, ...
The relevance of knowing the extent to which it has been normalized its use in research in the field of education, and more specifically in doctoral theses, original research works on a subject related to the scientific field of phd program.

There are several papers that analyse the doctoral theses production according to different indicators and demonstrating the relevance of the study is in the context of scientific production and research (Civera & Tortosa, 2001; Delgado et al., 2006; Fuentes & Argimbau, 2010; Osca-Lluch et al., 2013; Repiso et al., 2011).

The present study analyses theses productions. The data have been recollected on the TESEO database on inclusive education during the period 1982-2016, and different indicators have been used: authorship, reading date, address, university, department, phd program. In the research process, following key words were included in the thesis title: inclusive education, special education, attention to diversity, special educational needs, specific educational needs and disability. As an instrument for collecting information, ad hoc matrix was developed and the information obtained in the consulted database was incorporated. A descriptive analysis (frequencies, percentages and graphical representations) of the information collected using the IBM SPSS Statistics program was carried out.

Among the most relevant results, it should be noted that doctoral theses on inclusive education have experienced more or less constant growth in recent decades; the highest scientific production of theses corresponds to departments and phd programs belonging to the education area. Finally, in most doctoral theses, disability is the most frequently used descriptor.
