Summary

This paper discusses a study performed on the various trends that exist among the 260 articles published in the "Journal of Research and Development in Education" between 1990 and 1999. The study's results showed 36 (13.8%) of the Journal articles published within this 9-year span focused on literacy. Information was categorized for each article with respect to authors' gender, multiple versus single authorship, study design, use of statistics, age of subjects, number of subjects, and kind of research. There was no significant trend by year for the number of articles published by men, women, or male/female co-authors. There was a significant trend by year for the number of articles with single versus multiple authors. From 1995, no single-authored articles focused on literacy were published in the Journal. There were also changes in predominant approaches to study design during the decade. The majority of the studies analyzed were experimental or descriptive. From 1990 to 1994, more study designs were experimental, while in 1995 more were descriptive. The majority of the studies primarily used ANOVA or MANOVA. None of the articles published after 1995 were applied research; all were basic research. The majority of the studies focused on elementary school-age children and on college students. Approximately half the studies had fewer than 100 subjects. Most of the articles had multiple questions/foci. (Contains 37 references and 5 tables of data.) (Author/RS)
