The revival and development of values education in the world has become a hot topic in the field of education development in the new century. With the increasing demands of the government and people from all walks of life on the values education, the research on values education has begun to increase in the international academic circles. This paper tries to adopt the method of knowledge mapping, select the literature on “values education” in the SSCI database from 2009 to 2018 as the analysis object, and use CiteSpace software to analyze values education. The paper finds that the number of publications on international values education is increasing year by year, forming a core research field focused on pedagogy, psychology and sociology. The mainstream authors on international values education research are Simon Marginson, Pierre Bourdieu, John Dewey, Albert Bandura, etc. In recent ten years, the hot topics on international values education research mainly focus on six themes. Teacher education, physical education, personal values, choosing the caring setting, digital storytelling and professional identity, and teacher education has become the most popular research topic.
