The purpose of this special issue is to collate a corpus of material on group work in career development that will serve as a future resource for the field and to set a future agenda for research. Authors are asked to contribute both conceptual and empirical articles that address the use of group work in career development. Research may employ quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods.

At a time when demand for career development services is increasing and client groups diversifying, the potential of group work to provide practitioners with innovative interventions warrants careful consideration. It is timely therefore, that greater attention is focused on the application of group work in career development.

In addition to the primary focus of manuscripts on group work in career development, authors could also consider a secondary focus such as client groups (e.g., women, adolescents, people with migrant and refugee backgrounds) and settings (e.g., schools, universities, public employment services, private practice) where the use of group work could be appropriate.

Submission guidelines

The first drafts of manuscripts are due to the Special Issue Editors by 30 September 2019.

If you are interested in authoring a manuscript for the special issue, please submit research or conceptual full-length articles that include title, author(s), abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion and implications into the Manuscript Central Submission Portal for JSGW.

Following submission and endorsement from the special issue editors, manuscripts will undergo a blind peer review process.

For additional information or questions, please contact the Special Issue Editors: Mary McMahon, The University of Queensland, Australia or Mark Watson, Nelson Mandela University, South Africa.
