THE INDIAN JOURNAL OF SOCIAL WORK


About

The Indian Journal of Social Work (IJSW), a pioneering publication of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), while focusing on the theory and practice of social work, is consistently involved in the production and exchange of knowledge across diverse fields of practice. This flagship journal of TISS is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal published in January, April, July, and October. The first print issue of the IJSW was published in 1940 and maintains a record of uninterrupted publishing for 84 years. It stands tall among the social work journals published in the global South. Emphasising the values of inclusiveness, participation, justice, care, and solidarity, the IJSW’s scope cuts across international, multidisciplinary issues of sustainable futures in the global South.

 

Aims and Scope

The IJSW seeks to address gaps in current knowledge and stimulate policy discussions on the most critical issues by providing a platform for academicians, researchers and practitioners to share and disseminate their theoretical and empirical knowledge in all aspects of social work and related fields. The IJSW publishes high-quality theoretical, analytical, and empirical works on social policy and social development, community organisation and development practice, criminology and justice, children and families, women-centred social work, indigenous communities, Dalit and Tribal empowerment, disability, LGBTQA+, public health, mental health, disaster management, livelihoods and social entrepreneurship, and lifelong learning. The IJSW also plays an essential role as an interdisciplinary think tank facilitating discussions and publications on social work education, emergent complex problems, and related fields of practice, such as artificial intelligence and social work, climate change and sustainability, social innovation, migration, and international social work.

We encourage authors to submit original research articles that provide interdisciplinary insights on the link between theory and practice. Additionally, we have a section, ‘Notes from the Field’, specifically about sharing stories and learning from the field. Apart from peer-reviewed articles, the IJSW also encourages readers to contribute to the section on ‘Reader’s Comments’.  

The IJSW aims for the highest standards in its published material. All research articles in this journal, including those in special issues, special sections, or supplements, are subjected to rigorous peer review.

 

Call for Papers

The IJSW invites original research papers and articles belonging to the following categories:

  • Theoretical/historical/empirical/methodological/epistemological analyses
  • Reviews of policies/programmes/legislations/voluntary organisations/ professional interventions
  • Curriculum development/Teaching aids
  • Research summaries
  • News from professional associations in social work
  • Book reviews, Book review essays, and media reviews
  • Discussion Note and Notes from the field
  • Interviews

THE INDIAN JOURNAL OF SOCIAL WORK


About

The Indian Journal of Social Work (IJSW), a pioneering publication of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), while focusing on the theory and practice of social work, is consistently involved in the production and exchange of knowledge across diverse fields of practice. This flagship journal of TISS is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal published in January, April, July, and October. The first print issue of the IJSW was published in 1940 and maintains a record of uninterrupted publishing for 84 years. It stands tall among the social work journals published in the global South. Emphasising the values of inclusiveness, participation, justice, care, and solidarity, the IJSW’s scope cuts across international, multidisciplinary issues of sustainable futures in the global South.

 

Aims and Scope

The IJSW seeks to address gaps in current knowledge and stimulate policy discussions on the most critical issues by providing a platform for academicians, researchers and practitioners to share and disseminate their theoretical and empirical knowledge in all aspects of social work and related fields. The IJSW publishes high-quality theoretical, analytical, and empirical works on social policy and social development, community organisation and development practice, criminology and justice, children and families, women-centred social work, indigenous communities, Dalit and Tribal empowerment, disability, LGBTQA+, public health, mental health, disaster management, livelihoods and social entrepreneurship, and lifelong learning. The IJSW also plays an essential role as an interdisciplinary think tank facilitating discussions and publications on social work education, emergent complex problems, and related fields of practice, such as artificial intelligence and social work, climate change and sustainability, social innovation, migration, and international social work.

We encourage authors to submit original research articles that provide interdisciplinary insights on the link between theory and practice. Additionally, we have a section, ‘Notes from the Field’, specifically about sharing stories and learning from the field. Apart from peer-reviewed articles, the IJSW also encourages readers to contribute to the section on ‘Reader’s Comments’.  

The IJSW aims for the highest standards in its published material. All research articles in this journal, including those in special issues, special sections, or supplements, are subjected to rigorous peer review.

 

Call for Papers

The IJSW invites original research papers and articles belonging to the following categories:

  • Theoretical/historical/empirical/methodological/epistemological analyses
  • Reviews of policies/programmes/legislations/voluntary organisations/ professional interventions
  • Curriculum development/Teaching aids
  • Research summaries
  • News from professional associations in social work
  • Book reviews, Book review essays, and media reviews
  • Discussion Note and Notes from the field
  • Interviews
