JGSW Submission Information
The Journal of Gerontological Social Work accepts articles; brief reports; book, media, and resource reviews; letters to the editor; and commentaries.
The Journal of Gerontological Social Work aims to be the leading voice in thought development, research, educational training, and professional practice in the field of gerontological social work. We publish articles across a wide range of domains and settings of gerontological social work including, but not limited to, theoretical analysis, original research using qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods, clinical interventions, knowledge translation, systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and policy analysis. We seek manuscripts that advance the field of gerontological social work in the United States and internationally. The Journal of Gerontological Social Work accepts manuscripts on a broad range of issues such as social and economic justice, health and wellness, productivity and engagement, informal and formal care, supports and services, safety and abuse, social networks, marginalized and minority populations, neighborhoods and housing, and other topics related to aging and social work. Our articles provide timely and relevant information for researchers, educators, and practice professionals.
The journal publishes articles that inform and guide research, policy, and practice relating to older adults and the field of social work. Manuscript submissions reporting on new and important research, forwarding conceptual and theoretical frameworks, presenting and evaluating program and practice innovations, social work and related professional education and training, and public policy related issues are welcomed. Manuscripts that integrate research, policy, and practice and/or that focus on knowledge translation are also encouraged.
