Journal Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare (JSSW)

Aim & Scope

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. The Journal provides an outstanding book review section as a regular feature of each issue. 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. 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. The 2006 March issue, for example, is a Special Issue on Coping with Poverty. The Editorial Board includes outstanding scholars such as Mimi Abramowitz, Pallassana Balgopal, Richard M. Grinnell, Jr., Alice K. Johnson, Wilma Peebles-Wilkins, Eunice Shatz, and John Tropman. JSSW is sponsored jointly by Western Michigan University, the College of Health and Human Services, and School of Social Work. The substantial support of Arizona State University in the publication of the journal is gratefully acknowledged. [1]
