2020-08-14The Indiana University School of Social Work is pleased to release our 20th Anniversary Issue of Advances in Social Work. The current issue presents 10 empirical papers authored by 35 scholars and practitioners from 15 states in the U.S., Washington, DC, and Canada. The blind peer-reviewed papers touch upon various aspects of violence prevention or intervention, social work management issues, diversity and/or advocacy for particular populations, and teaching practice skills to online students. Advances in Social Work is committed to enhancing the linkages among social work practice, research, and education. While celebrating our first 20 years, we continue to look to the future and are grateful for the ongoing support of Dean Tamara Davis as we endeavor to document and share emerging knowledge in the field of social work in a fully open-access format.
