Abstract

We examine trends in words/terms published in Health & Place between 1995 and 2018. Terms used have diversified over this period, including a decline in 'health' overall, as well as greater usage of 'diet', 'alcohol' and 'depression'. There was a noticeable increase in using 'neighbourhood' to describe context. Topic modelling reveals that papers are increasingly concerned with specific aspects of place (e.g. the built environment). Our findings emphasise that Health & Place has matured into the leading outlet for examining the geographical dimensions of health with important and enduring insights that continue to inform research and policy.
