Editorial policy and ethics
SUBMITTING YOUR MANUSCRIPT
The Canadian Social Work Review welcomes articles of analytic and empirical merit (between 4,500 and 6,000 words). Articles may be submitted in either English or French.
The peer review process is double-blind. Papers are sent for assessment to at least two reviewers. Your manuscript is also read by an editorial board member who reads the external reviews as well. The editor, in consultation with the editorial board, makes the final decision regarding publishing (accept, reject or recommend revisions to the paper). This process usually takes between four and six months and authors will be contacted once the evaluation has been completed.
