CANADIAN SOCIAL WORK REVIEW
Call for Anglophone and Francophone Scholars
The Editorial Board of the Canadian Social Work Review – Revue canadienne de service social (CSWR-RCSS) has two vacant positions to be filled, one on the journal’s Anglophone committee, the other on the journal’s Francophone committee.
The CSWR Editorial Board consists of seven members who are chosen from across Canada, taking into account regional representation, equal representation of male and female scholars, and, to a lesser extent, representation from different fields of interest in social work. The Editorial Board also strives to reflect the cultural profile of our profession. The normal term of office is three years, but it is common for members to serve two terms to ensure a smooth transition during the regular turnover of members of the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board recommends, and the CASWE-ACFTS Board of Directors ratifies, the selection of candidates.
Prior publishing experience and experience in reviewing articles are important. Applicants must be (or become) members of the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE) and also be affiliated with a Canadian school of social work. According to CASWE policy, individuals already serving on the Association’s Board of Directors, or the Commission on Accreditation, cannot be considered.
The Editorial Board selects articles and sets policy for the journal, which is published twice per year. Members usually meet face-to-face twice per year and hold conference calls as required to deal with matters of editorial policy and management of the journal. Most work is done via email.
Applicants interested in these volunteer roles are requested to submit a letter of interest and their curriculum vitae by email to Lise Larocque, Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than April 24, 2019.
