General Call for Papers 2018 – Advances in Social Work and Welfare Education


We are calling for articles for the second issue of Advances, to be published in the second half of 2018. Advances aims to showcase material which is of relevance to social work, welfare and community development educators in trans-Tasman and international contexts and, where applicable, to link this with international social work concerns.

Submissions arising out of the ANZSWWER symposium presentations are especially welcome: there were so many great presentations in Auckland, it would be wonderful to see them transformed into articles.

There are three sections in which papers may be published: refereed full papers, “Practice Reflections” or contributions to “New Voices”. Full papers to be refereed should be no longer than 7000 words including references.  “Practice Reflections “ and “New Voices’ should focus on recent events or current topics of interest to the journal audience of social work and welfare, and may provide a different perspective for practitioners, educators and students. “Practice Reflections” and “New Voices” should be no longer than 2000 words including references.

Preparation of Copy: Please write following the guidelines Advances Author Guidelines 2017


Submissions are due by the 31st of January 2018.


Send Abstract submissions to: Carole Adamson – 
Please ensure that you include your full name and email contact details.


Following peer review, draft articles will be returned to authors for final revisions by May 2018.  Authors are strongly encouraged to submit an overview of the proposed article to the editor, Carole Adamson,  for feedback and suggestions.
