ABSTRACT
In this editorial I present a quick analysis of action research studies in science education in Turkey. My search of the master’s theses and doctoral studies in the official database yielded that the first ones were completed in 2008 as doctoral dissertations, notably supervised by the same professor at the same university. I could identify a total of 243 action research graduate studies in all fields in Turkey. Among these 62 are in science education (just about 25%). One noteworthy finding is that one third of these studies (21) were completed in 2019.
