About This Journal
The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare promotes the understanding of social welfare by applying social science knowledge, methodology and technology to problems of social policy, politics, the social ecology, and social services. Since its first printing in 1974, JSSW has published articles on such topics as social change, gender, race, homelessness, social welfare history, cultural diversity, international social welfare, and the social dimensions of health and mental health. It also features an outstanding book review section as a regular feature of each issue.
JSSW is published quarterly in March, June, September and December of each year. At least one issue in every year is dedicated to a special theme. For instance, in March 2018, a special issue was published entitled “Dimensions of Charity versus Development.” The Editorial Board includes outstanding scholars such as Mimi Abramowitz, Katharine Briar-Lawson, Mary Caplan, Alice Johnson-Butterfield, Susan Robbins, and Wilma Peebles-Wilkins.
