Publication Trends in the "Journal of Teaching in Physical Education" from 1981 to 2005
Ward, Phillip; Ko, Bomna
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v25 n3 p266-280 Jul 2006
We examined publication trends in the "Journal of Teaching in Physical Education (JTPE)" in terms of total representation as well as trends by decade of the (a) sex and country of affiliation of editors, (b) sex and country of affiliation of editorial board members, (c) sex and country of affiliation of first authors, (d) types of manuscripts published, and (e) foci of those manuscripts. Overall results suggest that female scholars have achieved parity in terms in editorships and editorial memberships on the "JTPE" board. In terms of international representation, whereas the editorships remain predominately in the hands of those from the United States, there is an increasing international representation on the editorial board. The majority of submissions come from the United States, with just under one-sixth coming from other countries. In terms of the focus and type of manuscript published, results show a diverse range, thus reflecting a nonpartisan journal defined by problems and settings, rather than methodology or ideology.
