The online-only biannual journal published by the Faculty of Arts Press, Charles University, focuses on the theory and practice of social work, social policy and related disciplines. The editorial team accepts only contributions which correspond to the journal’s principles and core values. Articles submitted must be intended for exclusive publication in the Social Work Forum. Authors are asked not to submit more than two articles/contributions per year. Peer-reviewed academic papers form the core of the journal. A further section presents examples of good practice or work methods that could serve as an inspiration or model. In addition, the journal contains a section dedicated to abbreviated versions of final student theses.
