Abstract

This study aims to employ a Google database to explore worldwide engineering education journals. Research questions focus on four areas: (1) journal indexing, (2) journal characteristics, (3) frequently cited articles, and (4) H-index profiles. A three-stage content analysis, which included journalsampling, journal examination, and journal identification, was used to obtain related data. A total of twenty engineering education journals were identified and examined through a quantitative investigation. The findings yielded in the study may allow engineering educators and researchers to gain in-depth information about journals in the engineering education area, to understand various ranking methods, and to select a suitable journal when submitting a manuscript for publication.
