CSWE Full Circle Submission Guidelines

CSWE has both general and section-specific editorial guidelines in order to present information in a streamlined manner that is user-friendly to its members. CSWE reserves the right to edit or decide not to publish any item; it does not upload documents from external parties to its website; rather, a URL link is required.

  • Titles must be seven words or fewer.
  • Items consist of a one sentence lead, followed by another sentence that includes an URL link to a source that provides further information. CSWE Full Circle serves as a navigational tool for readers; actual content is on the CSWE website.

Submit to fullcircle@cswe.org

Members in the News

Being featured in Members in the News is exclusively available to a BSW or MSW that is a program member or a person with an active individual CSWE membership. Section submissions should consist of one lead sentence that summarizes the accomplishments of an individual with CSWE individual membership (appointment, grant receipt, research activities, etc.). The individual’s employer affiliation should appear in parentheses to the right of the name. News that cannot be expressed within a sentence should contain a direct URL to the full story.

Please note that activation of CSWE membership could take up to 7 business days.

CSWE objectively lists books, journals, e-resources, or other materials related to social work or higher education that could serve as a resource to its members. CSWE does not promote sales or coupons for products.

This section's submissions should consist of one lead sentence that provides an overview of the resource with a URL link for further information. Any testimonials should be featured on the URL provided and not contained within the submission itself.

Opportunities for Members

CSWE regularly features funding opportunities, calls for proposals, seminars/courses, and other professional development opportunities relevant to its members through the Opportunities for Members Focus section. Section submissions should consist of one lead sentence with a linking URL and should list:

  • The type of opportunity (for example, grant, fellowship, call for conference proposals)
  • The individuals or institutions eligible for the opportunity (for example, researchers, students, schools/colleges/departments of social work)
  • The deadlines or general requirements that could determine member interest, and
  • A URL for further information.
