The Canadian Social Work Review (CSWR) is a bilingual, peer-reviewed journal that reflects current thinking and focuses upon contemporary concerns relevant to Canadian and international social work practice and education.
The purpose of the journal is to advance social work scholarship, practice, and education by publishing original research, critical analysis, and debate that enriches or challenges existing knowledge.
The CSWR has grown out of a Canadian context and continues to publish both Canadian and international articles. Published twice per year, the journal celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2019.
Published by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE-ACFTS), the CSWR is a member of the Canadian Association of Learned Journals and is published with the financial assistance of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
The CSWR is read by social work academics and practitioners across the country and can be accessed online through Érudit, ProQuest and JSTOR.
Individual members of CASWE-ACFTS receive a subscription to the journal as part of their membership benefits.
