Oxford Bibliographies Update Program
Did you know that each Oxford Bibliographies article is reviewed annually and updated with the latest scholarship available?
Learn about how Oxford Bibliographies are updated on the Update Program Page.
As a discipline grounded in social theory and the improvement of peoples’ lives, social work scholarship necessarily shifts and changes along with society, which leads, in turn, to an ever-growing body of literature. Scholars and professionals must keep abreast of new discoveries, interpretations, and theories in the field, and thus require access to the most recent developments. With Oxford Bibliographies in Social Work, students and researchers will have a reliable and up-to-date place to start their research. Unlike traditional bibliographies and the online abstracting & indexing services, Oxford Bibliographies in Social Work provides a much-needed filter to the avalanche of scholarly information now available.
