Sometimes it is important to look back so that one can more clearly determine future directions. As such, the purpose of this paper was twofold. First, characteristics of participants, settings, interventions, interventionists, design, and measures were coded and analyzed to ascertain the nature of publication trends in the Journal of Behavioral Education for volumes 1-14. Analyses revealed that approximately 65% of articles in JoBE were data-based and the majority of studies were conducted in special education settings by researchers during the time period. Also of note was that procedural integrity data were collected in just over half of studies in these studies. Second, based on the descriptive data, a series of recommendations are presented in an effort to make the interventions examined in the journal more generalizable across educational environments.
