Aim & Scope:

Nordic Social Work Research aims to promote and disseminate high quality research on social work in the Nordic countries by publishing peer reviewed original articles, with social work understood in a broad sense, including practices as well as conditions and policy.

Nordic Social Work Research promotes critical and pluralistic perspectives from an interdisciplinary standpoint and welcomes contributions from researchers in different social science disciplines. A variety of methodological approaches are represented and contributions include both empirically based and theoretical articles. Studies with a comparative perspective on Nordic countries are of interest. Articles that present studies of Nordic social work or help mediate between Nordic and international scholarly discussions are especially encouraged.

The journal aims to encourage authors from the Nordic countries and internationally to disseminate research findings in English, by providing a forum for academic writing on research and practice in social work, social care, social pedagogy and social policy. Authors not originating from the Nordic countries are very welcome to contribute with articles of relevance to our audience.

All peer review is double blind and submission is online via ScholarOne Manuscripts.

Nordic Social Work Research is published in association with the National Associations for Social Work Research, FORSA, in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, for an international audience of scholars, professionals and students interested in keeping up to date with the recent research.
Subjects Covered & Scope: Ethnicity and Culture; Health and Social Care; Social Work Policy; Social Work Research; Social Work and Social Policy
