Description

The present study examined the content in the Career Development Quarterly (CDQ) and the Journal of Vocational Behavior (JVB) for a 20-year period. A total of 791 CDQ articles and 1062 JVB articles were classified into the substantive areas of career research and practice devised by Fitzgerald and Rounds (1989). Additionally, author, institutional affiliations and leading contributors were examined. Results of the study identified two principal areas of research activity and publication for each journal. For CDQ, the two principal areas were ''life-span perspectives on career development'' and ''career interventions.'' For JVB, the two principal areas were ''the person-environment perspective on vocational choice'' and ''the assessment of vocational behavior.'' Together, these four areas accounted for 63.5% of the articles classified for both journals. Overall, content for both journals has remained relatively stable over the years. Additionally, very little overlap exists between the authors contributing to the journals, and only slightly more commonality is observed between the institutional affiliations of the two sets of authors.
