Transition From Education To Work - A Question Of Justice

„Jubilee Edition“ - 10 years of SW&S: „Transition From Education To Work - A Question Of Justice"

Open Access Journals have been established in the late 1990s and early 2000s. As a reaction on the paradoxical situation of having for the first time the technical possibilities to open the access to a global audience through the internet, but experiencing main international publishers going the other way around by raising the rates for the existing journals massively, the international open access movement adopted the Budapest Open Access Initiative in February 2002 and the Berlin Declaration on Open Access in 2003.

In that context a group of international scholars from social work and social policy decided in 2001 to implement Social Work & Society. After one and a half year of preparation in autumn 2003 the first issue of SW&S was ready to be launched on www.socwork.net.

As an early pioneer of open access publishing SW&S joined the Digital Peer Publishing Initiative NRW in 2005 and have been supported by the German Research Foundation from 2009 on.

In the tenth year SW&S is now a very well known international Open Access Journal, valued by a growing number of users.

Therefore the Editorial and the Advisory Board really want to thank all authors, reviewers and not at least the users for their support and interest in the last ten years!

We are happy to present you a broad variety of excellent papers in our first „Jubilee Edition“-issue: So, have a look in Vol.10./No 1 of Social Work & Society, including the new SW&S.Special Issue on „Transition From Education To Work - A Question Of Justice", main articles by Jotham Dhemba (Lesotho) and Jason L. Powell (Liverpool) on Fieldwork in Social Work Education and Training and Social Work and Elder Abuse, two research notes and an essay by Magda Frišaufová (Masaryk), Stefan Pohlmann, Paula Heinecker and Christian Leopold (all Munich) and Christian Spatscheck (Bremen) and the current SW&S.Historical Portraits by Anna Amera and Jan Steyaert (Antwerp) on Litsa Alexandraki and Jane Jacobs.

This is www.socwork.net - the Open Access-Journal for Critical International Debates on Social Work & Social Policy!
