As a result of archive scan, 33 magazines and papers submitted in the 20 national and international congresses and symposia between 2000 and 2009 are examined. Furthermore, post-graduate and PhD theses prepared in the field of geography education between stated dates are determined. Then, the obtained data were subjected to analysis of frequency, percentage, application and content to evaluate. In the analysis of data, these articles, papers, and theses were encoded depending on place, date, and number of publication and classified under 9 different subject titles. Consequently, a large part of studies were determined to have been in the fields of learning activities, measurement-evaluation, and program development.
