This paper aims to discuss about an editorial scope of pedagogical journal in physical education field. Our intent is compare some of their pedagogical issues with Brazilian ones. We chose the Journal of Teaching in Physical Education because it is well qualified in the Educational Brazilian Governmental web system. We framed our scope in three big issues: a) the high concentration of American researchers in the most of papers; b) the permanent idea about the Physical Education is the responsible for promote wellness in schools and the related problems; c) the absence of epistemic discussions about the role of physical education in the Educational System. At the end, we discuss the necessity of having many theorical and empirical adjustments in the Brazilian Physical Educational papers, so as to we are able to publish in the international arena.
