Guidelines for authors.


The Career Development Quarterly (CDQ) invites manuscripts regarding career counseling, individual and organizational career development, work and leisure, career education, career coaching, and career management. Methodologies can include but are not limited to literature reviews that make research accessible to practitioners, case studies, history and public policy analyses, qualitative research, and quantitative research of specific relevance to the practice of career development. Each manuscript should include implications for practice because CDQis concerned with fostering career development through the design and use of career interventions. Sections within the journal include the following:

* Effective Techniques. Reports of demonstrably effective career counseling methods or programs are featured in this section. They describe theoretically based techniques that advance career development for people of all ages. Qualitative or quantitative data providing evidence of the technique's effectiveness will be included in such manuscripts.

* Brief Reports. Manuscripts should contain a clear and concise summary of a study (including rationale, research, and practice).

* Global Visions. This section contains manuscripts addressing issues of career counseling and development in countries outside the United States.
