In this way it may be possible to identify a number of alternative measurement approaches, the context within which each should best be applied and a better understanding of the inconsistencies in findings that have emerged from this sort of research. Reviewing coping research in a work setting is not without its difficulties. Because the literature is so diverse and voluminous (Burke and Weir, 1980) criteria have to be established for any review of progress. Here as elsewhere (Dewe, Cox and Ferguson, 1993) these criteria involved limiting examination in general to the academic literature, and identifying articles where necessary on a citational basis and selecting those that, in general, were measurementoriented and directed towards identifying strategies used by individuals to cope with work stress.
