Abstract

This study was undertaken to obtain an insight into the available research on Physical Education at Schools. Initially, we carried out a comprehensive research on the main themes addressed by Physical Education journals, and later on those journals that specifically addressed issues related to Physical Education at Schools. The results show that, whereas the great majority of national articles discusses the characterization of Physical Education at Schools, the international articles published are more concerned with the teaching-learning process. It can be concluded that there is little research on Physical Education at Schools conducted in Brazil and, whenever there is, it shows a predominance of studies related to characterization.
