The journal was first published as the Journal for the Application of Occupational Psychology to Employment and Disability in October 1998 and was later re-titled the Journal of Occupational Psychology, Employment and Disability in Winter 2002.
JOPED became the new official title from January 2011, when it changed from being a twice-yearly publication to one that publishes on an article-by-article basis.
