Objective of the study was to assess the degree of influence of the Teoriya i Praktika Fizicheskoy Kutury Journal on the development of the theory and methodology of competitive swimming.
Methods and structure of the study. The statistical survey under the study addressed the competitive swimming development rates. The data from the information environment of Sport Science System served as an empirical basis. We used its bibliographic, morphological, and semantic modules. Additionally, a thesaurus method was applied. Its empirical basis was formed by the pre-textbooks, study guides, and university textbooks on the theory and methodology of competitive swimming, which (ideally) were to contain essential knowledge accumulated at a particular point in time.
Results and conclusions. The author conducted a statistical survey of the trends in the number of publications in the period from 1925 to 2019 devoted to the problems of competitive swimming. In particular, it was shown that the articles published are mostly devoted to competitive swimming training methods.
The Teoriya i Praktika Fizicheskoy Kutury Journal publications reflect the nature of information, which is subsequently transformed into contents of textbooks on the theory and methodology of competitive swimming, as well as define perspective directions of research in this field.

Keywords: Teoriya i Praktika Fizicheskoy Kutury Journal, theory and methodology of competitive swimming, trend in number of publications, trend in number of terms used, statistical survey, thesaurus method.
