Mobile technologies are useful. However, several mobile technologies also have disadvantages for students besides their advantages. Cyberloafing is one of these critical situations that the students could experience. Several studies on cyberloafing were conducted worldwide. The present study aimed to analyse these studies based on variable frequency, workgroups, data collection instruments, research methods and distribution of studies among countries. This study aimed to evaluate the results of the publications found in the Google Scholar, Web of Science, Science Direct, Scopus, ProQuest, Sage, Taylor and Francis databases with a search using ‘cyberloafing’ keyword and published between 2013 and March 2018. The present study would provide insight into existing studies and their shortcomings and it would also provide guidance for further research
Keywords: Cyberloafing, document analysis, educational setting.
