About This Journal

The Journal of Vincentian Social Action (JoVSA) is published biannually, engaging the greater community in the service of the disadvantaged.

As a community we are engaged in research and direct service to those most in need. We seek insight into the causes and consequences of poverty and believe that these actions can help alleviate suffering. We welcome works covering research, conference proceedings, case studies, and position papers on topics that highlight the challenges faced by the disenfranchised.

The Journal launched in June of 2016 and has covered topics including:

● Wars Conflicts and the Marginalization of Dissent
● Street Homelessness
● Global Perspectives on Pope Francis’ view on capitalism
● Healthcare
● 400th Anniversary of the Vincentian Charism

We retain viewership in 118 countries. Our readership is both academic and non-academic, with organizations and government representation as well.

JoVSA authors are drawn from leaders and experts from associated fields, specifically those that engage in making change for marginalized and underserved populations.

JoVSA is open-access, freely available online, to all.
