Mission and Vision

Mission

The Mission of the Michigan Journal of Social Work and Social Welfare is to promote dialogue about knowledge, values, skills, and social justice-related issues by providing students the opportunity to contribute to the social work body of literature. Founded by students at the University of Michigan School of Social Work in 2010, this journal aims to also serve as a forum for students to express their perspectives and their learning in a way that contributes to our profession and is committed to increasing support for research among the social work community.

Vision

The Michigan Journal of Social Work and Social Welfare is intended to be a top tier scholarly journal for students. An editorial board of peer reviewers with an active wide range of applicable skills and experiences will blind review submissions. The editorial board will be advised by an experienced Faculty Advisor. Our vision for the Michigan Journal of Social Work and Social Welfare is a student-centered, student-run forum from which social work, and social justice issues can be exchanged.

The editors will establish the on-going policies governing the MJSW’s editorial process, content and quality standards. These methods are based on evidence-based practice methods, relevant theory, and other standards that contribute to the production of a quality publication. Editors of the Michigan Journal of Social Work and Social Welfare will strive to maintain the journal as a forum for innovative and knowledge-based writing that helps present new directions in the social work field.
