The Journal of Inclusive Postsecondary Education was created to fill the dearth of publication outlets for research in inclusive postsecondary education (IPSE). To better evaluate the types of articles published, and the journals publishing this work, a trend evaluation was conducted. Research syntheses, such as literature reviews and meta-analyses, are commonly employed to aggregate findings across studies of a similar intervention or target behavior. This allows researchers to evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions. Another type of analysis that can help researchers evaluate research within a specific field is the trend analysis. Rather than evaluating the efficacy of a specific educational practice, journal articles are reviewed to discover trends in research. Within a relatively new field such as IPSE, this type of review serves to explore articles published and to discover gaps in the quantity or quality of researc.
