In choosing the best conceptual article, the JSWE Editorial Board looks for originality of thought, sound or innovative conceptualization of the topic, and conclusions and/or recommendations that add significantly to the professional knowledge base and to social work education. Lorraine M. Gutierrez, Editor in Chief noted “that this was a particularly valuable article on an important topic where little conceptual work has been done.”
