Abstract

This paper examines the citation counts of papers published in the first 25 years of the Sociology of Health and Illness. According to this measure only a small number of papers have made a major impact on the discipline of sociology of health and illness and an analysis of these select papers identifies some common themes. In particular, 'successful' papers have provided important theoretical constructs for the field while exploration of aspects of identity has been a recurrent focus.
