Subject:Submission Deadline Extended - CASWJ Call for Articles

Hello everyone, I hope you are well during this still hectic season. We have decided to extend the submission deadline for the special issue on foster caregiving and child outcomes for the Child & Adolescent Social Work Journal to Friday, October 15th. We would like to offer as much flexibility as possible and to encourage high quality submissions. Thus, if you are interested in submitting but concerned about meeting the deadline, please email me by 10/15 with a draft of your incomplete manuscript and a plan for completion. For those submitting final manuscripts, please submit them through the CASWJ Springer portal (https://www.editorialmanager.com/casw/default.aspx). A description of the special issue is provided below. I hope that you will consider submitting a paper or sharing this with another colleague who may be interested. Please don’t hesitate to reach back out with questions: cooleym@fau.edu . We look forward to receiving your submissions (and appreciate those who have already submitted). Morgan CALL FOR PAPERS SPECIAL ISSUE OF THE CHILD AND ADOLESCENT SOCIAL WORK (CASWJ) We would like to invite you to submit manuscripts for a special issue of the Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal (CASWJ). This special issue will be devoted to understanding caregiving/foster parenting and child outcomes in kinship/relative and non-relative foster families, particularly those who are formally involved in the foster care system. Papers should be focused on research that addresses or supports the mental, physical, or relational health outcomes of children or adolescents in kinship/relative or non-relative foster care by examining various aspects of caregiving/foster parenting. Papers may also be focused more specifically on understanding or enhancing caregiving by kinship/relative or non-relative foster caregivers, as long as there is a clear connection to how this could impact child outcomes. It is acknowledged that children in foster care often face significant adversity and there is a disproportionate number of children of color in out-of-home care. Thus, authors are asked to include a strengths-focused and antiracist/anti-oppressive lens, as appropriate, to the content of the proposed manuscript. Example topics or content may include: * clinical practice with kinship/relative and non-relative foster families (e.g., clinical work or case studies, application or testing of therapy models, evidence-based practices, cultural adaptation of evidence-based practices); * relative/non-relative foster parent training intended to increase the skills of caregivers or enhance child outcomes (e.g., pilot studies, evaluation research); * family processes and child well-being (e.g., parent-child communication, relationship quality, foster parent functioning, coparenting among foster couples or between families and birth families); * kinship/relative and non-relative foster parenting practices (e.g., use of discipline, routines or rituals); * other creative or relevant strategies for enhancing mental, physical, or relational health outcomes of children in kinship/relative and non-relative foster families; or * manuscripts that are focused on specific child and adolescent subpopulations, such as children or youth who have been trafficked (sex or labor), specific racial or ethnic groups, children experiencing parental incarceration, etc. Authors may submit qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods studies, as well as papers grounded in one or more theoretical orientations, systematic reviews or meta-analyses, or conceptual papers that are not based on any formal theory. Please email Dr. Morgan Cooley if you have questions whether your paper topic would be appropriate. The editors for this special edition include: 1. Dr. Morgan Cooley, Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work, Florida Atlantic University 2. Dr. Judy Krysik, School of Social Work and Center for Child Well-being, Arizona State University Submission and Review Process Submit your paper via email as a Microsoft Word document to Morgan Cooley at cooleym@fau.edu by the deadline below. Please ensure your manuscript is formatted in current APA style and consistent with the APA's Journal Article Reporting Standards. Manuscripts will go through a blinded peer-review process by two reviewers before a final screening by editors. Accepted manuscripts will be available through Online First after they are accepted. Articles will have a Shared It link to make them accessible to all for online reading. The timeline for completion is as follows (please note that these are firm deadlines, as all manuscripts must be finalized by January 31, 2022 for processing): * October 15, 2021: Manuscript due to guest editors for peer review * December 1, 2021: Authors will be notified of whether their manuscript has been accepted for the special issue and receive feedback from peer reviewers and editors * January 6, 2022: Final draft of manuscript to guest editors ••• Morgan Cooley, Ph.D., LCSW she/her/hers Associate Professor FAU Phyllis & Harvey Sandler School of Social Work Google Scholar Profile fau.edu/ssw (561) 297-0385 SO-44, Room 314 Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Invest In Our Mission
