About the Journal

Submissions are open to articles that are Canadian and international in scope. The Journal is open access, multi-sectoral, and welcomes articles that deal with career development in its broadest sense. Authors are encouraged to submit articles dealing with career development in the corporate, non-profit, secondary education, post-secondary education and government sectors.

The Journal was made possible through the generous contributions of The Counselling Foundation of Canada, CERIC and Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. 

Open Access Journal & Publication Fees

The Canadian Journal of Career Development has always been fully open-access from our launch in 2002. This means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. 

Peer Review Policy

Unless indicated, our Journal uses a Double-Blind Peer Review process. Neither author’s & reviewer’s will know of each others identity. This ensures that personal biases or conflicts of interest are removed from the evaluation process.  We also work to ensure that reviewers are not from institutions that authors are also from.
