This study presents aninstrument to analyze from the perspective of the history of mathematics and mathematics educationthe publications about mathematics and mathematics education included in weeklies, journals, etc.In order to do so, a descriptive research focused on the analysis of historical texts is presentedusing the content analysis technique.
