This study investigates research trends in articles about physics education in Journal of Turkish Science Education (TUSED) by using content analysis method. There were 125 studies published between 2004 and 2011, and 46 studies related to physics education have been determined. The research trends in these 46 articles have been examined in terms of demographic properties of authors (gender, institution, number of authors, etc.), general themes and physics topics, research methods, sampling procedures and sample sizes, instruments, level of samples, statistical methods, use of covariance, retention test and dependent variables. Research results show that as a general theme, learning approach is the most studied. While concepts related to dynamic are most commonly studied in the articles, light and optics, thermodynamics, vibration and waves are the least studied physics topics. Furthermore, there is no study about modern physics. When we look at methods of 46 studies, quantitative studies are preferred most than qualitative ones. Moreover, samples of the studies were usually chosen from university students. Although, t-test and ANOVA were seen as the most common statistics, MANOVA, MANCOVA, and MRC have not been encountered. There is no study using covariates. This study is the one of the most comprehensive studies in the physics education literature and hope to give deeper insights to the researchers. © ISSN:1304-6020.

Bu çalışma; fizik eğitimindeki araştırma eğilimlerini belirlemek için, 1994-2012 yılları arasında Ulusal Fen Bilimleri ve Matematik Eğitimi Kongrelerinde tam metni basılan fizik eğitimi çalışmalarını içerik analizi yöntemi ile incelemeyi amaçlamaktadır. Bu amaç doğrultusunda; taranan 735 çalışmadan 282 çalışma, yazarların demografik özellikleri (sayısı, cinsiyeti, bağlı olduğu kurum vb.), genel çalışma temaları, çalışılan fizik konuları, araştırma yöntemleri, örnekleme yöntem ve sayıları, veri toplama araçl...
Review of Studies Related to Pedagogical Content Knowledge in the Context of Science Teacher Education: Turkish Case
Aydin, Sevgi; Boz, Yezdan (2012-12-01)
As a review study, the present study was carried out in order to introduce PCK construct to researchers and evaluate which aspects of PCK were studied in our country, and, finally, make recommendations in light of the analysis of the studies for further research. For this purpose, ERIC database, YOK (Higher Education Council) database were searched by using "Pedagogical Content Knowledge" as keyword. Moreover, journals published in Turkey and which are possible to be reached electronically were searched usi...
Content analysis of selected features of K-8 environmental education research studies in Turkey, 1997-2007
Erdogan, Mehmet; Marcinkowski, Tom; Ok, Ahmet (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
This study aimed to analyze environmental education research (EER) in Turkey conducted in Grades K-8 and published over the years 1997-2007. Due to the fact that there had been no systematic reviews of EER in Turkey prior to this time period, it was more appropriate to explore the implications of the results of this review for research policies and practices than for educational policies and practices in Grades K-8. A substantial search of the international and national literature revealed 53 studies that f...
