Quality Adult Life and Employment: A Quick Reference Guide to Bibliographic Citations.
Cardinal, Don N.; Quinn, David
A review of the literature and a bibliography are provided on employment and the quality of adult life for individuals with disabilities. The literature review examines the concept of quality of life in general as well as quality of life assessments among populations with specific handicapping conditions. This is followed by a list of over 800 references to publications on quality of life. Journal articles, dissertations, and manuscripts are emphasized more than books, and supporting and peripheral publications are emphasized more than traditional, more visible works. The list is categorized using a specially developed coding system, which organizes citations by their degree of relationship to quality indicators of the population at risk, by their focus on quality of life or quality of working life, and by the special population targeted. The bibliographic citations are also listed in alphabetical order by author. Each citation contains the author, title, publication date, and the name of the journal or publisher. (JDD)
