The purpose of this study is to explore the research base of STEM education in Malaysia through an analysis review of articles for a 14-year period, from 1999 to 2013. The research base review focuses on identifying four characteristics of STEM education: a) temporal distribution, b) the research areas involved in each discipline, c) the types of participants, and d) the methodological design employed. Published journals from web-based service providers were selected according to the original author’s discussion of STEM education in the articles. The findings summarize the core consistencies of STEM education literature across the STEM disciplines throughout the years by identifying the STEM-related content addressed by professionals in their respective fields.
