U.S. Institutional Research Productivity in Major Science Education Research Journals: Top 30 for 2000’s

Lloyd H. Barrow, Nai-en Tang


VonAalst (2010) used Google Scholar to identify the top four science education research journals: Journal of
Research in Science Teaching, Science Education, International Journal of Science Education, and Journal of
Science Teacher Education. U.S. institutional productivity for 2000-2009 for the above journals was the data for
the study. The major domestic science education programs were identified for raw and weighted counts. For the
top 10, there was a 100% agreement with different ranks while there was only a 60% agreement among the
bottom 10. These results demonstrated that dominant science education faculty published their research in
multiple empirical journals.
