Submission Guidelines

The Editorial Board welcomes manuscripts from School of Social Work students that provide insight into clinical, policy, and research issues in the field of social work. Journal submissions can be class papers, research projects, fieldwork experiences, or personal reflections about being a social work student. Submissions can also include research on or reflections about experiences with a particular program, practice area, population, model, or theory.

Praxis publishes an annual volume and manuscripts are accepted throughout the year. Each submission is reviewed 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 will make the final determination regarding which articles are ultimately published in the journal.

Full copy Praxis Manual can be found here.
