Founded in 1927, Social Service Review is committed to examining social welfare policy and practice and evaluating its effects. Providing multidisciplinary analyses of current policies and past practices in the United States and elsewhere, SSR publishes critical research from social welfare scholars and practitioners, as well as from experts in other fields. Articles include a wide array of topics such as child welfare, health care, social welfare policy, homelessness, the organization of services and communities, clinical practice and juvenile delinquency. In addition to thought-provoking essays, SSR provides book reviews to keep readers informed of current critical research.
