The objective of this work is twofold: First, we analyze the relation between the kcosymplectic and the k-symplectic Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formalisms in classical field theories. In particular, we prove the equivalence between k-symplectic field theories and the so-called autonomous k-cosymplectic field theories, extending in this way the description of the symplectic formalism of autonomous systems as a articular case of the cosymplectic formalism in non-autonomous mechanics. Furthermore, we clarify some aspects of the geometric
character of the solutions to the Hamilton-de Donder-Weyl and the Euler-Lagrange
equations in these formalisms. Second, we study the equivalence between k-cosymplectic
and a particular kind of multisymplectic Hamiltonian and Lagrangian field theories (those where the configuration bundle of the theory is trivial).
