Friends of Reflections

Since May 2012, the Cleveland State University School of Social Work is the Publisher of Reflections, after a long stewardship by California State University Long Beach School of Social Work. Our School is now publishing Reflections fully open access.

The CSU School of Social Work and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences provides important support for the Journal, including a graduate assistant and website support. In addition, significant annual support is provided by our Publishing Partners: Howard University School of Social Work; University of Georgia School of Social Work; California State University Long Beach School of Social Work, and Monmouth University School of Social Work.

However, the journal is also reliant upon institutional supporters such as social work programs and social agencies, who serve as Institutional Friend of Reflections. In addition, individuals can serve as Friends of Reflections. Reflections use these funds exclusively for Reflections and not for any other purpose. We are asking individuals, schools of social work, and social agencies, to step forward with the financial support necessary.

The minimum contribution is $250 and this need only be made once, although continued support is welcome. Current institutional friends are here. A generic invoice and W-9 form from Cleveland State University can expedite this support. Or just email with Institutional Friends in the subject. A formal invoice will then be provided. Checks from schools of social work and other institutional entities should be made out to Cleveland State University and mailed to Cathleen Lewandowski, Director, School of Social Work, RT 1417, Cleveland State University, 2121 Euclid Ave., Cleveland OH 44115.

Funds received are deposited in the operational account to support website hosting, copy editing, proofreading, and editorial support staff. Such Institutional Friend support can also be provided by credit card to our secure CSU Shopnet account (choose Reflections Journal on the menu):
