Open Access Social Work Research Sources

Practicing social workers need the latest research, and they may not have access through small employers or professional associations. The Open Access Social Work guide is providing access to everyone.

When School of Social Work students graduate, they lose off-campus access to the Library's subscription databases and full text journals. But, as practicing social workers they still need the latest research, and they may not have access through their employer or professional association. In an effort to help School of Social Work alumni and other practicing social workers in Oregon find the research they need, Librarian Kimberly Pendell created the Open Access Social Work guide.

This research guide provides links to free, online research journals and other resources in social work and related fields, organized around content areas like addictions and mental health. You can find the Open Access Social Work guide through the Library's Research Guides or at http://guides.library.pdx.edu/opensocialwork.
