The theme of special issue 15.3 (Publication Date: November 2022) is Social Work Research and Practice in a Digital Age. The goals of this special issue are (1) to increase our understanding of social work research and practice in a digital age within Chinese contexts; (2) to highlight and showcase current research and practice on the nexus of digital technology and social work; and (3) to present critical and innovative practical approaches that go beyond traditional social work interventions and assessments. All manuscripts that discuss technology-related social work research and practice in Chinese contexts are welcome.
