Abstract Title: Quantum Physics Education Research: A bibliometric analysis of QPER at the secondary level
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: Formal instruction on contemporary physics topics such as quantum mechanics (QM) is a particularly important component of modern secondary science education. Exposure to QM can radically alter an individual's view of the physical universe and can broadly engage secondary students. Exposure to QM in secondary schools has increased substantially in recent years yet is still an understudied area with a limited body of research on this topic. Here we analyze this body of research by bibliometric analysis, examining yearly output, citation index, author nationality, publishing venue, among other publication trends. The academic search engines SCOPUS and Web of Science were used to collect publications emphasizing the teaching and learning of QM at the secondary level. We present a quantitative analysis of the bibliometrics, as well as an assessment of publication trends in teaching and learning and an analysis of research gaps and opportunities for further investigation is discussed.
