Aims & Scope

The Journal of Interprofessional Practice with Social Work is an open-source, semi-annual peer –reviewed publication that provides an interdisciplinary forum for information exchange spanning the variety of practice settings that incorporate care provided by social workers in conjunction with other professionals.

Submissions may address any topic related to interprofessional practice that incorporates social work.  Contributions are welcome from all disciplines (e.g. medicine, nursing, nutrition, physical therapy, psychology, public health, speech therapy, pharmacy, law, education, psychology, public administration, criminal justice).  We welcome a variety of topics for submission, including original research, theory, educational innovations, and technology integration.  Additionally, all forms of methodologies and analysis are welcome to include quantitative, qualitative, and mix methods.  We also encourage student submissions.  Student publications will be identified as student work with an acknowledgement of the student’s faculty mentor. 

A non-exhaustive list of topics that are appropriate include:

  • Inclusionary Practice
  • Collaborative Team Models
