The aim of this chapter was to examine science education research trends that have been constructed in Korea. We were then interested in examining what impact these works have had on K-12 science teaching and learning. We conducted a content analysis of articles published in the Journal of Korea Association for Science Education with respect to research topics and contents. We also discussed the impacts of these research studies on science curriculum, science instruction, and science teacher education in Korea. Importantly, all of these particular foci provide an insight to the various applications of research and to ways how current research informs teaching practice, and thus raise questions of what needs to be done next.
