عنوان مقاله [English]
Scientific-research publications play a key role in representing creativities and scientific findings in a specific scientific field. So far, no comprehensive research has been carried out on this topic in the specialized field of architectural technology. Investigating publications in terms of qualitative content and the number of published articles can be an effective step in helping architecture researchers in this specialized field. The present study aims to show the general trend of architectural technology research published in all domestic scientific research journals, during the years 1979-2019. The present study was carried out in the spring of 2020 and it investigates 225 articles published in 21 domestic scientific research journals. The present study is qualitative-descriptive research. To reach the research goal, first, architectural technology articles are classified into 8 categories through their qualitative content analysis. Next, the relationships between them are analyzed using statistical methods. To this end, ten parameters are considered for further scrutinization, including "research topic of articles", "contribution of institutions", "publishing journals", "scientific ranks of authors", "contribution of scientific-specialized groups", "used references", "publication year", "research method used", "duration of acceptance", and "extractive sources". The results indicate that the subject of "structure technology" was the most widely discussed subject by researchers and the subject of "digital technology" was the least discussed subject. Among the authors, the frequency of graduate students is significant, which can be justified by the fact that the architectural technology sub-field is presented in the master's degree. Articles published during 1990-1995 account for the highest frequency, indicating the researchers' increasing attention to this topic in recent years considering society's need for it.
