In this article we reviewed literature related to creative self-efficacy in the field of education. We narrowed down the review to eighty-eight articles. We formed categories according to (1) publication year, (2) country of study, (3) sample/study group, (4) method used, and (5) subject matter addressed. The first study was published in 2004. The frequency of publications increased in the last three years. USA, China, and Taiwan are the leading countries in terms of origin of published articles. Except four inter-cultural studies, all others were conducted in a single country. About half of the studies were conducted with K-12 students and teachers, and the remaining focused on higher education students and instructors. Mostly quantitative methods have been utilized. Lastly, we categorized the issues tackled into nine themes. Researchers gave a heavy emphasis on investigating creativity/creativity indicators, individual/environmental factors and less emphasis on academic performance in relation to creative self-efficacy.
