The purpose of this study is to investigate the specific features of the articles on AR published in the journals of education indexed in the SSCI database between 2012 and 2017. In this context, the articles were examined in terms of their years of publication, number of authors, countries, educational disciplines/fields, types of AR, variables and methodological features. A total of 83 articles in 22 journals were analyzed by content analysis. The results showed that the number of studies related to AR increased in 2014 and 2017 and they were predominantly carried out in the field of science education. Marker-based technologies were more preferred in the studies. The most examined variables in the articles were achievement and attitude. AR studies were mostly carried out by scientists working at universities in Taiwan. Furthermore, mostly the experimental design was used in those studies and they focused on university level with respect to the sample level. The sample size between 0-50 was mostly selected from university level, while between 50-100 was selected from primary school. The trends in the features of studies are discussed in detail and some suggestions for future research are also included in this paper.
