The aim of this study was to examine the research studies conducted between 2000-2017 about “online counseling” with particular attention to the publication year, number of researcher in the researching teams, country of the researching university/researcher, application area researched, publication source, author, affiliation, research document type, and the research model used. According to the results; teams composing from two to three researchers are more common than studies researched by a single person. Applications focusing on “Analyzing Online Counseling” and “Online Counseling for Health & Medicine” are most preferred researched areas. Results also indicate that, more researchers from USA and Australian Universities studied “online counseling” related problems than others. The total number of research carried out for online counseling seems to have increased from 2007 onwards. It is believed that, these results together with the recommendations and comments may be supportive and helpful especially for the future online counseling research studies in developing countries.
