Characteristics of three journals published by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology are examined: Instructional Innovator (II); the Journal of Instructional Development (JID), and the Educational Communications and Technology Journal (ECTJ)--formerly the Audio-Visual Communication Review (AVCR). For each journal a historical description lists editors and summarizes the journal's purpose, characteristics, and developmental trends. Conclusions call attention to the drastic decline of the apparent impact of II and ECJ in the last 10 years. Tables display results of an analysis of each issue of each publication by year. Data reported include number of feature articles per year, men authors, women authors, photographs, television articles, film articles, computer articles, advertisers, average pages per issue, and issues per year. Also listed are the average feature article length, editorial board size, price, and membership cost. (LMM)
