This study aims to create a map for the scientific publications in the field of educational sciences and teacher education in Turkey. A bibliometric analysis was carried out with 7681 articles published in 32 different peer reviewed journals between 2005 and 2014. The findings show that one third of all articles were published in core journals determined by Bradford's Law ("Hacettepe University Journal of Education," "Educational Sciences: Theory & Practice," "National Education," "Education and Science"). The distribution of articles across journals do not conform to Bradford's and Pareto's Law yet it conforms to Price's Law. It is found that 80 percent of articles are single or multiple-authored; the mean score of author per article is 1.81; and 97 authors have more than 10 articles. When the frequency of words in the titles are analyzed, the first most frequently used five words are: "teacher," "student," "education," "primary education," and "teaching."
