Keywords in Journal of the American Planning Association Articles, 1975 until 2017

This week’s visualization is a bite in the ass; I’m ready to tear my hair out. Let’s just say this: my original plan was to see if I could find where the “sprawl” discourse really began in planning, at least in this journal….and I have some ideas, but none of the text analysis tools I used gave me a #@@$!! thing.

Since I have to go off to graduation this morning, and they really prefer that one both put on pants and brush the teeth, I’ll just throw what I have so far up here for discussion. For all the kvetching I’ve heard over the years that JAPA spends too much time on transportation, these data don’t show that.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    Oooh, I’ve been wanting to do a long-term content analysis to look at how planning and urban studies journals (and their trade counterparts) have looked at arts and culture. Can you tell me about the text analysis tools you’re using? (I know they’ve frustrated, but I’m eager to learn what’s out there.)

    Danke and a very happy pants-wearing, teeth-gleaming graduation day to you!
