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.

Suggested Questions
• What are the innovative responses to tackling the needs and vulnerabilities of different populations in a digital age?
• What controversial issues and ethical dilemmas do social work professionals encounter in their handling of different client groups in the digital age?
• What are the challenges and opportunities for social work research and practice with the use of digital technology in contemporary Chinese societies?
• Can Western knowledge and experience about social work and digital technology be applied to the Chinese context and if so, how?
• In what ways can digital technology be applied in social work settings?
