Editorial





It is with great pleasure that I introduce this first issue of 2005 in
my  new role as Editor-in-Chief. I bring to the task experience of
editorial work in other journals, as well as many years' involvement
in social work practice, education and research (including exchanges
and other cross-national activities) and an enthusiasm to explore and
promote  ideas and practices associated with international social
work. Formal  tributes have already been paid to my predecessor,
Professor Frank Turner, and I should like to add my appreciation
of his long commitment to the journal and to the values of inter-
nationalism. To some extent his influence will continue - at least
in the early stages of my editorship - as we publish articles accepted
under his stewardship. We hope that the move to six issues per year
will enable us both to publish more quickly articles already in the
pipeline and to promote new material. I am also pleased that the
sponsoring bodies (IASSW, ICSW   and IFSW)  and publishers have
agreed to the appointment of a Deputy Editor, Professor Vishantie
Sewpaul, from  South  Africa, and we  look forward to working
together and with others to further develop the journal.
  I should say at this point that, consistent with past practice, we
aim to promote a broad understanding of social work, as reflected
in the definition recently agreed by two of the journal's sponsoring
bodies (IASSW   and IFSW)*  and  also to recognize the relevance
of related concepts and activities, perhaps more familiar to some
members  of ICSW  and other readers. We therefore welcome contri-
butions from a wide range of stakeholders, including those who have
as yet had only a limited voice in social work journals. We hope that
the journal will increasingly provide a focus for identifying the
impact of globalization on the welfare sector, specifically in the
field of social work and community  development;  for exploring
the meaning and forms of 'international social work'; and for pre-
senting studies and accounts  which reflect regional and cross-
national perspectives.
