Over the last 25 years, the Journal of Career Assessment has provided methodologically sound, empirically based studies focusing on assessment, career development, and vocational psychology.

Regarding career development and vocational psychology, the journal covers all topics falling under each of these areas, especially those from a psychological perspective that have career counseling implications.

Innovative topics include:

  • Career assessment strategies
  • Developments in instrumentation
  • Validation of theoretical constructs
  • Relations between existing instruments
  • Career assessment procedures
  • Relations between assessment and career counseling/development
  • Review articles
  • Studies on career and work related variables
  • Mixed methods approaches
  • Intervention studies

The Journal of Career Assessment publishes methodologically and conceptually sound articles broadly in the area of vocational psychology. A primary aim of the journal is showcasing new research on the assessment of career and work related constructs and behavior. The term assessment, as used in this journal, covers the various techniques, tests, inventories, rating scales, interview schedules, surveys, and direct observational methods used in scientifically based practice and research to provide an improved understanding of individual’s career development, decision-making, and experiences in the world of work. A secondary aim is showcasing new research on any topic related to career, work, or vocational psychology, including but not limited to quantitative, qualitative, and experimental studies where ideas related to work and careers are a central part of the manuscript. The journal is also open to conceptual and theoretical contributions related to career, work, or vocational psychology. Implications for career counseling/development should be clearly noted in all manuscripts.
