This case study presents an examination of 30 years of "Journal of Teaching in Physical Education" ("JTPE") research. The purpose of this study was to provide a retrospective view of "JTPE" and its contribution to the field of physical education. In this effort the current study employed citation analysis, co-author network analyses and thematic coding based phylogenic analysis. Data were collected through an online repository of "JTPE" articles and through google scholar examination of citation counts. Results indicated that "JTPE" has undergone subtle changes during the course of its existence. Further, thematic analysis revealed that the topical content of the journal has remained consistent over the course of its operation.
