ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to provide a detailed analysis of the research literature in physical education for one decade, including data on the research focus (i.e., teaching, teacher education, and curriculum). A database of published research and research-based scholarship was created. Data were coded maintaining 97% or higher agreement levels. There were 1,819 physical education pedagogy research papers published during 1995-2004 in 94 different journals, including those that primarily pertain to (a) physical education (56.40%), (b) kinesiology (30.02%), (c) education and social science (9.35%), and (d) heath education and medical (4.23%). Papers represented all three focus areas: teaching (65.31%), curriculum (19.24%), and teacher education (15.45%). Research in physical education pedagogy has increased each year since 1995, including a small presence in education and social science journals as well as health education and medical journals.
