Object The purpose of this paper is to understand the current research status and hot spots in the field of health behavior in China in recent six years, and to provide reference for the development and practice of health behavior research. Methods This paper takes Chinese core and CSSCI journals in the field of health behavior as samples in recent six years and uses visual analysis tools Cite Space Ⅴ for multi-angle analysis. Results The overall change of the number of published papers was small, and the number of high-quality literatures increased year by year. The periodicals are mainly medical and health journals, and CSSCI source periodicals are few. There are cooperative relationships among high-yield institutions, but the degree of cooperation is low and the research force is scattered. The research focuses on the analysis of residents' behavior status and its influencing factors, the evaluation of the effect of health education applied to health behavior, and the research on the status of health literacy and its correlation with behavior. Conclusion Cooperation between research institutions should be strengthened to form a core research team. More attention should also be paid to the study of women's health behavior. In the study of behavior influencing factors, there is a lack of in-depth analysis from the perspective of social factors. It is necessary to further deepen the theoretical research and improve the quality of research.
