Best Reviewer Award
Journal of Social Work Education Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) recognizes the two or three top manuscript reviewers for each volume year at the CSWE Annual Program Meeting. The award is given based on percentage of manuscripts accepted, average time taken to return reviews, and quality of feedback to authors.
Best Article Award
Each year the EAB chooses the best conceptual and empirical articles of the previous volume year. These important articles discuss timely issues and significantly expand or deepen the body of knowledge related to their topics. They show originality of thought and provide sound or innovative conceptualization of their topics. Empirical articles also demonstrate a logical and sophisticated methodology appropriate for the study conducted, use advanced statistical procedures that are appropriate for the data analysis, and provide clear implications that add significantly to the professional knowledge base and to social work education.
