Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the published researches on the nature of science in Turkey by means of meta synthesis (thematic content analysis). For this purpose, the journals published in Turkey in the field of educational sciences and included in international indexes (SSCI), the nature of science, the nature of scientific knowledge, science education, nature of science, nature of scientific knowledge and science education keywords were scanned. A total of 24 articles reached in this way was analyzed in detail by considering parameters such as method/pattern, sampling level, data collection tool, data analysis method, research result, research recommendation, sources examined about the dimensions of nature of science and academic fields of researchers. As a result of these analyzes, the majority of the researches were conducted in order to examine the natural competencies, opinions and perceptions of science in the students. Besides, it has been determined that studies that examine the nature of science with applied studies have also been done. In addition to these findings, an equal number of studies have been achieved at the level of sampling at almost all levels of learning except primary school. This study has been completed with a number of suggestions for teaching the nature of science to students at all levels of learning, increasing the quality of their work and their tendencies.

Keywords: Nature of Science, Scientific Knowledge, Meta-Synthesis.
