Women's Contributions to the Leading Journals in Instructional Technology, 1995-2000.
Foley, Anne L.; Morgan, Janet
This study examines the articles from current journal literature in the field of instruction/educational technology to ascertain the number of articles written by women each year and the content that women are addressing in their articles. A previous study of the journal literature (Foley, Gurney, & Branch, 1994) examined women's contributions to the literature from 1988-1992. Both the current and previous analyses used method similar to Ely's work in analyzing the literature of the field (Ely, 1996). This study uses an analysis of the optics of articles to develop themes found in the literature and compares these to the trends and issues identified by Ely (1996) and Molenda, Russell, & Smaldino (1998). Finally, this study takes a critical look at these articles from a feminist perspective in regard to gender issues. (Contains 12 references.) (Author/AEF)
