Journal of Poverty -- Call For Papers

The Journal of Poverty is a refereed journal designed to provide an outlet for discourse on poverty and inequality. The editorial board welcomes manuscripts which sensitize social scientists and practitioners to the varied forms and patterns of inequalities, new developments in cultural diversity, and interventions promoting equality and social justice.

Articles guided by conceptual analyses involving quantitative and qualitative methods are encouraged. The intent is to produce and disseminate information on poverty and social, political, and economic inequalities and to offer a means by which nontraditional strategies for change might be considered. The journal is concerned with various levels of intervention ranging from direct practice to community organization to social policy analysis. Manuscripts should increase knowledge of oppressive forces, such as racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia, which contribute to the maintenance of poverty and inequality and suggest methods of change leading towards their eradication.

The Journal of Poverty is now in its seventh year of publication and is published quarterly by Haworth Press, Inc. For abstracts of earlier editions please see our web-page

Submissions should reflect the mission of the Journal. Authors should submit five copies of the manuscript. Manuscripts should be double spaced and no longer than 30 pages (including text, references, footnotes, tables, and figures). Please include an abstract of no more than 100 words. References and format should follow APA style. Manuscripts will be peer reviewed by at least three referees and returned with comments.

Manuscripts should be sent to:
