Mapping the journal of vocational behavior: a 23-year review
Mapping the journal of vocational behavior: a 23-year review

This article uses bibliometric analysis to review the Journal of Vocational Behavior (JVB) over 23 years. To conduct this review, we systematically analyzed 1490 JVB articles published from 1994 to 2016. We draw on this analysis to answer the questions: a) What key works did JVB articles build on during this period? and b) What key topics, articles, and trends appeared in the journal? We then provide empirically grounded reviews of major topic areas in JVB, and discuss recommendations for future research. This review is accompanied by two analytic science maps: 1) a co-citation map that reveals 466 key works referenced by JVB articles (http://bit.ly/JVBFoundationsMap), and 2) a topic map that reveals 353 JVB article topics, topic relations, topic trends, and citation rates associated with each topic (http://bit.ly/JVBTopicMap). These maps provide an overview of key vocational behavior topics and scholarship that readers can download and interactively explore to help guide their future research.

Abstract

This article uses bibliometric analysis to review the Journal of Vocational Behavior (JVB) over 23 years. To conduct this review, we systematically analyzed 1490 JVB articles published from 1994 to 2016. We draw on this analysis to answer the questions: a) What key works did JVB articles build on during this period? and b) What key topics, articles, and trends appeared in the journal? We then provide empirically grounded reviews of major topic areas in JVB, and discuss recommendations for future research. This review is accompanied by two analytic science maps: 1) a co-citation map that reveals 466 key works referenced by JVB articles (http://bit.ly/JVBFoundationsMap), and 2) a topic map that reveals 353 JVB article topics, topic relations, topic trends, and citation rates associated with each topic (http://bit.ly/JVBTopicMap). These maps provide an overview of key vocational behavior topics and scholarship that readers can download and interactively explore to help guide their future research.
