    In order to better identify overlooked research topics, a new way to categorise science education research papers was developed. The new categorisation system is based on the didactic triangle, a theoretical model describing the elements of a teaching-studying-learning processes. The analysis of in total 59 physics and chemistry education papers in journal of Nordic Studies in Science Education and two Finnish science education conferences revealed that students’ attitudes, understandings and their learning styles as well as teachers’ pedagogical activities are well investigated areas whereas more emphasis should be paid on society level studies. This demonstrates that the developed categorisation system could be used to trace the missing types of research foci and to promote discussion within the science education research community. Moreover, the new categorisation system also supports meta-level analysis of published research papers and thus contributes to the discussion about the goals and the present state of research in science education.
