Summary The MERGA website has a list of the titles of the last 10 years of Australasian mathematics education Masters and Doctoral theses, with linked abstracts. After a discussion about the socially-determined nature of document analysis, this paper reports the results of an interpretive document analysis of the web page and the pages of abstracts, with a focus on
(a) numbers of theses, by year and by institution;
(b) methodological approaches used;
(c) countries where data were collected; and
(d) theses topics. Begle’s (1979) framework of mathematics education domains is used to categorise 3 descriptors for each thesis.
