Energy Content Analysis

This part of the Global Energy Dilemmas website presents the results of a content analysis conducted as part of a research project on energy geographies. The analysis was conducted for the period between January 1st 1989 and December 31st 2011, based on the top 20 Human Geography Journals. Over the 23 years that the analysis covers, the membership of that top 20 has been in constant flux and the sample that is used reflects the current top ‘Human Geography’ journals. Obviously, the choice of journals sampled has a direct impact on the results, but the general trends are robust.

The research project has two aims: 

  1. first, to determine the prevalence of "energy-related" articles within these publications throughout the period of analysis; 
  2. and second, to explain any trends that seem apparent.
