Call for Papers - Special Issue on the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Deadline for submission: May 31, 2023 (UPDATE: We will continue to consider submissions until June 19, 2023. If you have an article you are intending to submit after May 31, please email our team at tsw.info@ucalgary.ca for more information)

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced substantial global challenges and shifts, with implications for societies including impacts on the delivery of social work. Implications of the pandemic on social workers and the profession of social work may have long-standing impacts which are not yet well understood or documented. As a Special Issue, we are inviting articles that address pandemic-related considerations for social work such as the experiences and impacts of the pandemic on social work and social workers, and lessons learned for professional practice and development in moving beyond the pandemic. Areas of article focus could include, for instance, pandemic outcomes and recovery strategies as well as recommendations for social work and communities more broadly in the event of another pandemic or health emergency.
