The University of Chicago Press is proud to announce the addition of the Journal of the Society for Social Work and Research
) to its journals program (www.journals.uchicago.edu/JSSWR

to be published by the Press will be March 2014 (vol. 5, no. 1).
The Journal of the Society for Social Work and Research is a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to presenting innovative, rigorous original research on social problems, programs, and policies. By creating a venue for the timely dissemination of empirical findings, advances in research methods, and systematic reviews of the literature, JSSWR seeks to strengthen the rigor of social work research and advance knowledge in social work and allied professions and disciplines. Special emphasis is placed on publishing findings on the effectiveness of social and health services. JSSWR publishes research from an array of theoretical perspectives and research methods. It is particularly interested in analyses that advance knowledge useful for designing social programs, developing innovative public policies, and improving social work practice.
“It is an honor to be chosen by the Society for Social Work and Research as their publishing partner,” said Michael Magoulias, Director of the Journals Division of the Press. “The Society’s commitment to creating and disseminating transformational research that meets the needs of authors, readers, and librarians globally is completely aligned with the mission of the University of Chicago Press.”
The quarterly journal was previously published as an open-access, online-only publication; with the move to the University of Chicago Press it will now be available as a subscription product online and in print, and current issues will be available from JSTOR’s Current Scholarship Program (CSP). In addition, JSSWR
will be a part of the Complete Chicago Package (www.journals.uchicago.edu/CCP
), which offers reduced pricing to institutions that subscribe to Chicago’s full collection of journals.
Founded in 1891, the University of Chicago Press was conceived by President William Rainey Harper as an organic part of the University, extending the influence of Chicago scholars around the globe. Today, the Journals Division of the Press (www.journals.uchicago.edu
) works with 30 society partners to distribute 61 journals and hardcover serials that present original research from international scholars in the social sciences, humanities, education, biological and medical sciences, and physical sciences.
