The authors examined articles published in the "Journal of Computing in Higher Education" between 2003 and 2012 with the purpose of determining the main themes of these articles, the types of research published, the major contributing authors, and the most-cited articles. An analysis was made of 129 original papers published by "JCHE" between 2003 and 2012, excluding acknowledgments, book reviews, announcements, notes, letters, or editorials. Findings indicated a significant number of theoretical articles (46.5% of total articles published). The most frequent topics of the articles reviewed related specifically to online and distance learning in higher education. The most-cited article in the "JCHE" was Reeves, Herrington, and Oliver's (2005) theoretical article on educational design research. The authors conclude by discussing trends and the special issues published by the journal. Recommendations for future publications in the "Journal of Computing in Higher Education" are included.
