This article analyzes articles published in the "Journal of Educational Computing Research" ("JECR") from 2003 to 2012. The authors analyzed the articles looking for trends in article types and methodologies, the most common topics addressed in the articles, the top-cited articles, and the top authors during the period. The analysis suggests that "JECR" employs a primarily inferential approach to their articles, which aligns with the journal's goal of "outcome effects" based research ("Journal of Educational Computing Research," n.d.). The most common topics addressed by the articles were "educational technology" and "computer assisted instruction."
