Abstract

This qualitative study of the first five years of presentations of the Society for the Study of Occupation: USA (SSO: USA) yields important information about the development over time of occupational science as a disciplinary body of knowledge. A thematic analysis of the abstracts of peer-reviewed presentations at the annual meetings of the SSO: USA was separately and then collaboratively completed by a group of eight researchers. Through coding the abstracts, the researchers discovered themes and trends in knowledge discovery. The analytic process, coding categories, and trends in the topical, methodological, theoretical, and population group foci of occupational science research presented between 2002 and 2006 will be described. Implications of the study for the future of occupational science will be discussed.
