This study investigated institutional publication activity in counseling psychology journals for the 10-year period from 1993 to 2002. Four journals reported by counseling psychology training directors as prime publication outlets for the field of counseling psychology were used: "Journal of Counseling Psychology," "The Counseling Psychologist," "Journal of Vocational Behavior," and "Journal of Counseling and Development." Comparisons with the most recent previous ranking study revealed that institutions in the top 20 remained fairly stable. However, 13 of the top 40 institutions ranked in this study were not ranked in the previous top 40. Implications for the field are discussed, and suggestions for how to improve publication activity trend analyses are made.
