Abstract: We reviewed articles published in School Psychology Review, Journal of School Psychology, and School Psychology Quarterly from 1985–1994 and used time-series graphs to display the proportion of female authors (primary and secondary authors) of empirical and expository articles. Statistical analysis procedures also were used to test for significant differences between male and female publication rates across article types. While men were more likely to be primary and secondary authors of articles, an increasing trend in female authorship was evident. When articles were separated by type (i.e., empirical or expository), the data showed an increase in the proportion of females as authors of empirical but not expository articles. Variables that may account for these findings are explored. These variables include an increase in female school psychology faculty and researchers’ experience. The effects that current trends may have upon school psychology journal literature are discussed.
