Background: The aim of the present research is to investigate the research outputs on ethics and technology from the perspective of teachers, based on Google Scholar, from 1983 to 2020.
Methods: This applied and quantitative study used descriptive and bibliometric methods. The population and sample of the study were 1343 documents retrieved from Google Scholar between 1983 and 2020. Harzing’s Publish or Perish software was used to collect data. VOSviwer and SPSS software were used respectively for visualizing co-authorship network and statistical cases.
Results: Based on findings, in the first 16 years only 84 documents were published; the number of publications during the next years steadily increased. About 64% of the papers were written by one author; while only less than 3% of papers had five or six authors. Also, Spearman correlation test showed that there was a significant and positive association between publication year with Google Scholar rank as well as between publication year and the number of authors per paper. The association between publication year and citation per author and publication year with citation was negative and significant. Furthermore, in the present study, the core authors based on co-authorship network and Collaborative Coefficient (CC) were identified.
Conclusion: In Google Scholar the new published papers are retrieved and placed in the first ranks. The number of citations per author and number of citations in total increased when the year of publication decreased.  It seems the number of published papers is not reason enough to receive higher citation.
