Review the Best Articles of 2018-2019

Social Work Education publishes articles of a critical and reflective nature concerned with the theory and practice of social care and social work education at all levels. It presents a forum for international debate on important issues and provides an opportunity for the expression of new ideas and proposals on the structure and content of social care and social work education, training and development.

In this way, the journal makes a vital contribution to the development of educational theory and practice in relation to social work and social care, promoting a set of standards in relation to the written presentation of ideas and experience which reflects the needs and requirements of both practice and education. It is most important that all contributions demonstrate and promote antidiscriminatory and anti-oppressive approaches to training and practice.

Social Work Education: The International Journal publishes articles of a critical and reflective nature concerned with the theory and practice of social care and social work education at all levels. It presents a forum for international debate on important issues and provides an opportunity for the expression of new ideas and proposals on the structure and content of social care and social work education, training and development. In this way, the journal makes a vital contribution to the development of educational theory and practice in relation to social work and social care, promoting a set of standards in relation to the written presentation of ideas and experience which reflects the needs and requirements of both practice and education.

To celebrate World Social Work Day 2020 and to contribute to the Global Agenda of Social Work and Social development, Social Work Education: The International Journal is delighted to announce an international competition for social work students.  We invite entries from groups of or individual social work/social care/social welfare students from across the globes who are involved in practical, advocacy and/or campaigning projects with their local communities or in support of vulnerable groups.  These projects should promote social justice, challenge stereotypes and make an impact on the lives of both the people that they seek to support, and on students’ understanding of themselves and of the role of social work in the 21st century. Entries should report and/or promote these projects, and make reference to the part played by social work/social care students.

Entries should be original, and presented in a format which will be accessible to as many people as possible, and so have the potential to achieve the greatest possible reach and impact.  For example, we wish to encourage submissions in the form of blogs, podcasts, videos etc. as well as more traditional articles, reports or posters. 

Entries may be in any language.  If in a language other than English, an English abstract, summary or subtitles (in the case of a video) must be provided.

Winning entries will be posted on the journal website in March next year, to celebrate World Social Work Day 2020.

For more information, please review our Conditions of Entry.
