The authors analyzed all research articles from the first issue of the "International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning" in 2006 until the second issue of 2014. They determined the research methodologies, most frequently used author-supplied keywords as well as two- and three-word phrases, and most frequently published authors, along with their country of origin. In these first 33 issues, "IJCSCL" shows a balance between theoretical, interpretive, and inferential articles. The journal's top-cited articles for this time period were theoretical for the first five years. Authors from 60 countries have published in "IJCSCL," and analysis of these articles shows a consistent focus on collaboration for the sake of student learning.
