The aim of this qualitative study is to analyse the content of randomly selected articles on leadership
and school management published in scientific journals in Turkey, and to determine the descriptive
characteristics, main and sub-dimensions, and general trends of those articles. For this purpose, the
“leadership” and “school management” directories were scanned in Google Academy. The samples
comprised randomly selected 30 articles that were published between the years of 2015-2021. The
content analysis of these 30 articles was based on main and sub-themes. The results revealed that when
the main themes of articles about leadership were examined, the subject of pedagogical leadership,
effective leadership and rotational leadership were discussed more than other articles. In addition, in
the articles related to school management, it was observed that organizational silence and favouritism
emerged. These main themes created some negative sub-themes, such as fear, anxiety, anxiety, and lack
of confidence and alienation of staff. In that case, it was observed that teachers were also influenced by
their self-sufficiency perceptions.
