(ISSN 1365-2206)


Aims and Scope

Child & Family Social Work provides a forum where researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and managers in the field exchange knowledge, increase understanding and develop notions of good practice. In its promotion of research and practice, which is both disciplined and articulate, the Journal is dedicated to advancing the wellbeing and welfare of children and their families throughout the world.

Child & Family Social Work publishes original and distinguished contributions on matters of research, theory, policy and practice in the field of social work with children and their families. The Journal gives international definition to the discipline and practice of child and family social work.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

Child & Family Social Work is committed to publishing scholarship that respects diversity. We seek to work with scholars from a range of institutional affiliations, nationalities, and career stages. We encourage submissions from scholars who belong to groups which are often underrepresented within academia, due to race, nationality, ethnicity, gender identity, disability, or other protected characteristics. We encourage all Child & Family Social Work authors to engage with and cite sources by scholars and other writers from groups which are often excluded from or marginalised within academia. To this end, we ask reviewers to consider, among other evaluation criteria, whether the citations for a given submission reflect the journal's commitment to diversity.
