Content Analysis of the "Journal of Counseling Psychology": Buboltz, Miller, and Williams (1999) 11 Years Later
Buboltz, Walter, Jr.; Deemer, Eric; Hoffmann, Rebecca
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v57 n3 p368-375 Jul 2010
A content analysis of research published in the "Journal of Counseling Psychology" ("JCP") was conducted for Volumes 46 (1999) through 56 (2009). The analysis involved the placement of 514 articles in 15 substantive content categories. In addition, we identified the most frequently published authors, most frequent institutional affiliations, and several reported demographic characteristics. The principal areas of research activity in the JCP were multiculturalism and/or diversity, research on development and evaluation of tests and measures, personality and adjustment, outcome research, and interpersonal and/or social support and/or attachment, with these categories accounting for 57% of the articles published. Over 40% of the samples reported were college students, with a large number of samples including both genders and indicating the ethnic breakdown. This content analysis revealed that the JCP has remained consistent with its stated mission while incorporating changes in the field in its publications. (Contains 4 tables.)
