Where Reflection & Practice Meet

Praxis is a student-run journal specifically designed to publish the scholarship of Loyola School of Social Work students and alumni.  Submissions may include empirical studies, case studies, theoretical analyses, book reviews, letters to the editor, and personal commentaries on the experience of being a student social worker. The mission of Praxis is to encourage and support the development of social work knowledge that will help enhance the lives of the clients we serve, embody the humanistic values of our profession, and promote social justice and care for vulnerable populations. Praxis respects and welcomes all viewpoints.

Praxis editors review each submission anonymously, and each reviewer will separately make a recommendation for rejection, revision, or acceptance into the journal.  Each reviewer will also provide the writer with helpful and constructive feedback on the article submitted.  If more articles are accepted than there is space, the Co-Editors-in-Chief make the final determination regarding which articles the journal ultimately publishes.

Manuscripts should be no longer than 20 pages in length and formatted with double-spaced text, 12-point font size (Times New Roman font), and one-inch margins (left, right, top, bottom). Please put all identifying information, including contact information, on a separate page. The entire review process is anonymous.

To apply for an Editorial Board position, please send a cover letter, resume, and a brief writing sample (no more than five pages) to ccallahan5@luc.edu and ryoung9@luc.edu with the subject line: “Editorial Board Application”  by EOD Friday, April 5th.
