ABSTRACT
Little is known about the coverage of health education responsibilities in peer-reviewed literature. Abstracts (n= 17,391) from one hundred health education related journals were reviewed and compared to the entry and graduate level responsibilities of health educators. Journals were ranked by percent of abstracts addressing at least one responsibility. The Journal of Nutrition Education and Health Education and Behavior received the highest ratings with over 90% of their abstracts pertaining to health education. A large number of abstracts addressed Responsibility I (needs assessment), but there was limited coverage of most other responsibilities. These findings have implications for professional development.
