Abstract


This research aims to propose a bibliometric map of studies on the use of STEM in education. This study used publication co-citation analysis, author co-citation analysis, and word frequency analysis methods to reveal the structure and transformation of STEM literature. Descriptive data such as the distribution of studies in the field by country, institution, and time were obtained from the Web of Science (WoS) database. We used the RStudio program for bibliometric analysis. The International Journal of Stem Education is the most widely published. Journal of Science Education and Technology received the most citations. Guzey S.S. is the author with the most publications on the subject. Capraro M.M. most cited author. The university that publishes the most is Purdue University. The USA is the country with the highest number of publications. The paper by Blickenstaff titled Gender and Education in 2005 has been cited the most worldwide. The research by Maltese, which was published in 2019, had the highest local citation rate. According to the results of cluster analysis, four clusters were formed. The term "STEM" appears to be present in all clusters. "STEM Education" was also included in three clusters.
