The purpose of this study was to perform a comprehensive analysis of 830 articles published in the "Journal of Career Development" ("JCD") between 1972 and 2007 and provide a chronicle of the publication trends since the journal's establishment. The analysis focused on six main areas (e.g., authors and institutions, type of article, major constructs/variables, career theories, type of methodologies, and sample characteristics). The results revealed that "JCD" published articles with a wide range of topics consistent with its mission statement. Recommendations for future publication agenda are presented. (Contains 2 tables.)
