Abstract

The contribution of psychological publications to interdisciplinary educational research is monitored scientometrically. Objectives refer to comparisons of publication trends (1945-2014) in Anglo-American publications (PsycINFO) and these from the German-speaking countries (PSYNDEX). Databases include continuously the affiliation of authors. Results refer to the development of psychological publications concerning educational research and of the subset of these concerning empirical educational research (a) in the Germany-speaking countries (including English publications), (a) in Anglo-American psychological publications and (c) comparisons of both. Psychological contributions to educational research increase since the 1980s significantly in the Anglo-American and with a time lag of ten years in the German-speaking countries. Both show very strong increases of psychological publications on empirical educational research after the millennium.
