The authors analyzed all research articles in the "Australasian Journal of Educational Technology" from 2003 to 2012 to determine the types of research methodologies published, major contributing authors, and most frequently referenced keywords, abstract terms, and cited articles. During this decade, the majority of articles published were interpretative studies, followed by inferential and theoretical articles. Later in this decade, as the number of articles published in the journal increased, the authors observed a decrease in theoretical and descriptive articles. Following this trend, the journal's top-cited articles earlier in the decade were theoretical articles, while more of the top-cited articles in later years used interpretative/qualitative methodologies. The international- focused journal emphasized higher education and learning technologies.
