Abstract
The present study was a follow‐up to Tsai and Wen’s (2005) earlier research, in which 802 articles published in the International Journal of Science Education, Science Education, and the Journal of Research in Science Teaching from 1998 to 2002 were analysed in terms of author’s nationality, research type, and research topic. In the present study a total of 869 papers published in the three journals from 2003 to 2007 were analysed, and the results were compared with those of Tsai and Wen. Moreover, this study also identified 31 highly‐cited papers published during 1998–2002 and 20 highly‐cited papers published during 2003–2007. The results showed that authors from countries other than the four major English‐speaking countries (i.e., the USA, the UK, Australia, and Canada) published an increasing number of articles in the past decade. During these five years (2003–2007), science educators showed relatively more interest in research topics involving the context of student learning. Besides, science educator...

Both beginners and experts can improve their publishing success by increasing their knowledge of the journals to which they send manuscripts, Mr. Henson points out. Some people write for publication to give back to their profession, some to improve their profession, some to improve their teaching, and some to advance their own careers through securing tenure, promotions, and merit pay. Whatever th...

Studies that attempt to evaluate and rank institutions often overlook the research activities of an institution. In this article, we show how readily available data from the Institute of Scientific Inquiry (ISI) may be used to estimate the number of scholarly articles written by an institution's faculty. We show how institutions are ranked according to total publications and the ratio of publicati...

Abstract The scholarly productivity of educational psychologists, indexed in terms of the number of papers published in professional journals in the field was the focus of this investigation. Five journals considered to be among the “core journals” in the field and, thus, those in which educational psychologists are likely to publish their scholarship were examined for the years 1991–1996. Both in...

Socioscientific issues (SSIs) have gained recently more importance in science education. SSIs are an important component of scientific literacy. SSIs are social dilemmas including conceptual or technological links to science. The present study aims to determine SSIs related research trends via content analyses of the articles published from 2004 to 2015 in five selected science education journals ...

The review of two of the most relevant research topics in the field of science education: conceptual change and alternative conceptions, shows a series of methodological and theoretical weaknesses which concord with the ones indicated by expert-led seminars. The weaknesses suggest that there are other less rational commitments which explain the heavy production of writings in the field. Our resear...
