Forschung en

socialpolicy.ch is a scholarly journal concerned with all areas of social policy and the welfare state. It strives to be a go-between linking academia and practice. Thus it is aimed at both scholars and all those actively practicing in the area. The journal should facilitate academic discourse about developments and concepts in social policy – in the widest sense of that term – in Switzerland, in other countries, and in international comparison. The journal publishes quantitative, qualitative, and comparative research on social policy, as well as theoretical pieces. In addition to academic articles, the journal can also publish shorter pieces (reviews of significant books and brief research notes).
