As one of the four premier journals in vocational psychology, the "Journal of Career Development" ("JCD") has published over 830 articles over the past three decades. This study examined the performance of "JCD" through a citation analysis and provided evaluative data for scholars publishing in the field of vocation psychology. Articles published by "JCD" between 1986 and 2007 were analyzed. Additional data pertaining "JCD"'s performance were also collected through the "Journal Citation Reports". The analyses revealed a strong and growing impact of articles published by "JCD" on researchers and professionals. Specifically, results provided (a) the frequency and trends of "JCD"'s citations overtime, (b) the journals where "JCD"'s articles were most often cited, (c) the most frequently cited "JCD"'s articles, (d) "JCD"'s impact data in applied psychology, and (e) "JCD"'s citation information among the other three vocational psychology journals. Implications of the results for the journal are discussed. (Contains 8 tables.)
