160 Invited Journal Editors' Workshop: Forum on Publishing Qualitative Research

This workshop is for conference participants seeking to publish qualitative research and scholarly work in social work journals. The workshop brings together a distinguished panel of editors, former editors, and researchers from four journals: Qualitative Social Work, Affillia, Journal of Social Work Education, and Families in Society. These journals are highly regarded and share commitments to excellence in social work research and publication.

In this session, the editors describe the aims of their respective journals and editorial decision-making processes. Most important, they will create a discussion with participants about what constitutes a publishable qualitative article that influences practice and policy.

The session will be on Zoom. Participants will be muted, and we would like them to submit questions via chat. The chair will read the questions to the editors. During the last part of the discussion, participants may unmute and discuss topics of interest. In this workshop, the editors contribute to the scholarly development of the participants by building skills related to successful publications.

The editors will discuss several issues, including how to match topics to specific journals, review processes, features of articles they’ve accepted for publication, how to respond to reviewer comments, and how to address the implications of their research for practice and policy.
