April Showers bring May Articles. The Month in Community Psychology

Spread the love

We’re trying out a new format this month as we here at PubTrawlr transition to a new architecture. You’ll still be able to find the most up-to-date synthesis and recommendations. For whatever reason, it was a pretty light month: Thirty-Eight articles across these four journals.

Monthly Summary

The word cloud at right shows the high-level terms that show up across all the 38 abstracts. These hit the common community psychology themes: CBPR, critical, development, and experience.

Below, we applied a clustering algorithm and then identified the terms that uniquely describe each topic.

Topic clusters by frequency


The most frequently occurring topics were implementation, COVID-19 behaviors, and school mental health. We then determined which article was most representative of each topic. We put these into a pdf., which can be downloaded at the link below.
