Welcome to the Journal of Vincentian Social Action.

JoVSA is published biannually, engaging the greater community in the service of the disadvantaged.

The journal provides a scholarly forum for those working to address community-defined needs; a forum where practical solutions are presented to address the plight of the disadvantaged and needy. Measurement and assessment of these efforts connecting action to outcome are a critical component ensuring positive results and real change in the lives of the disadvantaged.

JoVSA welcomes research articles, position papers, and conference proceedings. See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
