Administration in Social Work has been renamed Human Service Organizations: Management, Leadership & Governance. Management practice is changing and evolving in a wide variety of human service organizations. Social workers and many other professions and disciplines are engaged in both practice and research on issues related to management, leadership, and governance activities in public, nonprofit, and for-profit human service organizations, well beyond the traditional reference to “social work” organizations. In addition, educators and researchers are engaged in teaching about, and studying, a broader range of organizational settings and activities than in the past.
The new name of the journal captures some of the evolution that has been taking place in the field, with the result that the journal will be the only journal in the field that features management, leadership, and governance of human services organizations, both nationally and internationally.
