A Scientometric Map of Global Educational Research

Abstract : Educational research covers a diverse area of topics that presents integration challenges. We used a bibliographic analysis of the Scopus database to describe educational research and present a global map that consists of 18 research clusters that are connected by distinct sets of references. Clusters differ in their core references and how much they focus on educational research. Some clusters share references in a highly connected way and focus directly on teaching and learning (e.g. Learning cluster) while other clusters share references more loosely and focus on topics that lie at the interaction of education and other related fields (e.g. Sociology of Education cluster). As such, clusters represent subfields of educational research that are differentially organized around different research topics and incorporate shared knowledge bases embodied in shared references. Students, researchers, and practitioners can use our results to explore the collectively built knowledge bases of educational research.
