Submitted research should inform researchers, practitioners, programme developers, and policy-makers, and can include empirical studies based on quantitative and qualitative methodologies, targeted reviews of areas related to career development, papers that advance career development theory, scale development studies, cross-cultural research, intervention and counselling evaluations, and articles that facilitate policy development in the career area.

AJCD will also accept proposals for Special Issues on topics of interest to its readers and which deal with, for example, emerging issues, under-researched areas, or significant topics that merit showcasing.
