In this article, the authors review the basic features of Design-based research (DBR). The authors describe the trends toward increasing its use, and highlight and analyze the most cited articles that focus on DBR in education. The authors conclude that DBR is being utilized increasingly in educational contexts and especially those in the United States. It seems to be especially attractive for use in K–12 contexts and with technological interventions. The increasing number of studies reported suggests that researchers and graduate students are finding ways to meet the time demands of multiple iteration studies.
