    Abstract

    Targeting at analyzing the research status and trend of the educational technology field, this study conducted a bibliometric analysis on research topics, author profiles and collaboration networks using a top ranked journal Computers & Education (ISSN: 0360-1315). Using the Web of Sciences database, we retrieved 3,963 articles published by the journal during the period 1978-2018. The annual distribution of articles demonstrates a significant increase in the journal publications, especially since 2005 to 2011. The scientific collaboration between authors, intuitions, and countries/regions has become increasingly close. The scientific collaboration rate between authors from the same institution, and from the same country/region, is relatively higher, compared with those from different ones. Keyword evolution analysis highlights some prevalent topics such as ‘interactive learning environment’, ‘teaching/learning strategies’, ‘pedagogical issue’, and ‘improving classroom teaching’. Findings of this study provides a comprehensive overview of the articles on educational technology over the past 40 years.
