Dear SCRA members,

I'm happy to share that my team is hiring for a Research Associate.

Call for Papers: Journal for Social Action in Counseling and Psychology

[Announcement from SCRA-L]

We would like to invite you submit manuscripts for possible publication in the Journal for Social Action in Counseling and Psychology (JSACP). This open access Journal promotes deep reflection on community change and system transformation in which counselors, psychologists, and other human service professionals play a role. JSACP aims to highlight ‘engaged scholarship’ and the very important social change work done by professionals and activists that would not normally find its way into publication. The journal attempts to break down the divide between theory and practice in one of the most critical areas of our work: social transformation toward social and ecological justice and peace.

The journal features four unique sections:
1. Activism and Advocacy
2. Education and Training
3. Policy and Theory
4. Program Development and Evaluation

Articles submitted to JSACP are subjected to a blind review. We currently accept articles in English and Spanish. As a fully open access journal, all articles are available free of charge on the JSACP website. To submit an article and to learn more about the journal, visit:

JSACP is sponsored by Psychologists for Social Responsibility and Counselors for Social Justice.
