In this paper, a brief overview of the 245 known academic publications that can be considered Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education related articles is provided. Their method of selection is described as well as their availability on the International Studies of Astronomy Education Research Database (istardb.org) database. The typical types of articles are described and their major locations of publications are outlined. From this a rough impact analysis using a blunt citation metric is used to provide a broad overview of the literature for the field as a whole. These explorations are discussed with broad conclusions presented about how to write an article in the field with some impact as well as where and what to publish as the Robotic Telescopes, Student Research and Education (RTSRE) field continues to grow.
