About the Role
Ethics and Social Welfare is recruiting for a new editor to edit the journal for a three-year period.
The journal publishes articles of a critical and reflective nature concerned with the ethical issues surrounding social welfare practice and policy. There are three current editors, with specialisms spanning social work, applied ethics and social policy. We are seeking a fourth editor with expertise in the application of moral, political and social philosophy to issues and themes in social welfare.
The journal has four issues per year and is published by Taylor & Francis. Ethics and Social Welfare has an international board that meets virtually twice a year, and represents regions across the globe. Our newly joining editor may be based anywhere in the world, however given the current composition of the team we will particularly welcome applications from those based in, or with strong networks in, the global South.
This role will offer the successful applicant an opportunity to help shape the future of a journal that has consistently grown since its foundation, highlighting ethical issues in social welfare from an interdisciplinary and increasingly global perspective. It offers space for philosophical reflection and argument, empirical studies of values in social policy and practice, and thoughts about ethics in practice, from academics, welfare professionals, service users and carers. It has a particular focus on social work, social care, youth and community work and related social professions.
