In this study, a content analysis of research is aimed in the field of mathematics education of Turkish researchers. To this aim, the investigation of 359 article were made which were accessed from web in full text between 1987 and 2009 years and which were published in the field of mathematics education from 32 different journals. 27 of these journals were national and 5 of them were indexed in Web of Science (SSCI). For this particular aim, a paper classification form, developed by Sozbilir, Kutu and Yasar was revised and used for research in mathematics education. Each publication has been subjected to content analysis through this form and the data were recorded in a database. The data were analyzed using SPSS 16.0 software. The results chart, frequency, and percentage table is presented as a descriptive manner. As a result, a large increase in mathematics education since 2002 is concerning studies, quantitative research is more preferred, as the subject of research is in the forefront of learning activities, studies, using more than one data collection toot and as a method of data analysis are in the forefront of the use and frequency were determined
