In recent years, a new concept called seamless learning has appeared. This concept depends on the premise that learning should be maintained without interruption in different environments. Seamless learning is also important not only for meeting the expectations of the new generation whose life styles and learning needs are different but also for supporting the new paradigms in education. In this respect, the present study aimed to demonstrate the results of content analysis on the articles related to concept of Seamless Learning in Scopus database between 2009 and 2018. A total of 58 papers were examined to determine the concept list, top journal list, most cited papers, research methods and models, participants, data collection tools and variables in these articles. The study is considered to be important as no detailed content analysis has been conducted on the concept of seamless learning concept. The research results revealed a considerable increase in the number of studies on the concept of seamless learning by year. Singapore was the leading country in seamless learning research. It was seen in these studies that conceptual/descriptive methods were prominent as the research methods; that K-12 students were preferred more as participants; and that the most common data collection tools included interview and academic achievement tests.
