Concept

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des BildesThe Annual Review of Social Work and Social Pedagogy – OeJS – was published for the first time in April 2019. LINK

The new scientific journal is a place of publication for disciplinary discussions. Research results and themes from Austria will be presented while picking up on international discourses. The aim of the journal is to represent developments in social work and social pedagogy at a high level and to promote further discussion.

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des BildesEach edition concentrates on a particular theme. In addition, each volume features general contributions and book reviews.  

The current, fourth Call for Papers welcomes contributions on the topic "Political Implications of Social Work" (extended deadline for abstracts: 30 August 2020). The first volume in 2019 looked at “The Consequences of Child and Youth Welfare” (PDF). The second edition in 2020 focussed on "Migration and Mobility" (PDF of the complete edition). The third volume will be published in 2021 with a special focus on "Participation and Social Work".

The OeJS only publishes original research contributions. All articles will undergo a double-blind peer review process. Furthermore, the aim is for the yearbook to be included in international citation indexes.
