Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation will provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information about the major areas that constitute vocational rehabilitation.
Periodically, there will be topics that are directed either to specific themes such as long-term care or different disability groups such as those with psychiatric impairment. Often a guest editor who is an expert in the given area will provide leadership on a specific topic issue. However, all articles received directly or submitted for a special issue are welcome for peer review. The emphasis will be on publishing rehabilitation articles that have immediate application for helping rehabilitation counselors, psychologists and other professionals in providing direct services to people with disabilities.
Original research articles, review articles, program descriptions, and case studies will be considered for publication. Ideas for special topical issues are welcomed as well.
Abstract: Although there has been progress in transition and employment-related outcomes over the past 20 years, too frequently such progress has been minimal.

Abstract: This article reviews the experiences of the authors in the area of transition from school to work and community living for individuals with severe intellectual disabilities and sets forth a series of recommendations based on these experiences to maintain gains earned through research and demonstration over the years and to lead to further improvements.
Abstract: This article provides a retrospective of twenty years of employment for persons with significant disabilities detailing trends, short-comings and promising practices. The article coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation.
