The current issue of the Social Work Review was focused on the theme: Education, policy and innovation in social work and was achieved through an editorial coordination action of two teachers from the West University of Timisoara, the Faculty of Sociology and Psychology, from the Social Work Department

As it has been noticed since the announcement of this theme, the reality is that progress in the field of social work leads to strengthening the links between education, innovation, research, social policies and practice. The varied content of the published articles demonstrates maturity of social work research with reference to education and innovative practices in Romania and abroad.

We briefly present the papers published in this issue of the Social Work Review:

The first research is conducted by four young PhD students in sociology at the West University of Timişoara: Abu Abid Mohammad, Luiza Vlaicu, Dănuţ Bălăuţă and Dorina Buică, and presents the social implications of violence in school through a quantitative analysis carried out in Negev, Israel. The following article is written by two academics and two PhD students, Patricia Runcan and Alexandru Neagoe, together with Cristina Bălău and Gabriela Povian, and presents the results of a study on a topical issue, that of the integration into the labor market of HIV-positive people. From the Technical University of Cluj Napoca, Adriana Florentina Călăuz presented an analysis of a successful social innovation model implemented in Baia Mare. Following, Adriana Căldăruş and Remus Runcan have published a sociological analysis of educational quality management which can be particularly useful for university education in the field of social work. We follow with the publication of an article presenting the results obtained by Corina Ilinca and the reputed researcher Stephen J. Cutler on a topic regarding health and quality of life with important references to the topic of the current issue. Academic Eugen Jurca publishes an article on the topical elements regarding the therapeutic guidelines that come to support social workers in the field of addictions. The following is the publication of a study presenting the results of a Masters level educational program coordinated by Alexandru Neagoe, which evaluated its best practices, working with Loredana Marcela Trancă, Luiza Vlaicu and Dănuţ Bălăuţă. The following article follows a research on the innovative elements of the homelessness intervention carried out by PhD students Claudiu Mihail Roman and Rodica Cojan. Two specialists in the field of education sciences, Simona Sava and Loredana AlGhazi published in this issue a study on the social dimension of the functionalities of university education in Romania. Accepted for publishing was, in the field of psychology, a research by Otilia Ioana Tudorel, which together with Mona Vintilă, presented the social implications and the necessary social support in the phenomenon of Internet addiction. There is an article on social and school inclusion made by Ramona Elena Tutunaru. The following article belongs to PhD students Roxana Ungureanu and Diana Biriş, focusing on issues of juvenile delinquency and resilience. Mihaela Tomiță and Irina Vaştag publish the results of a recent PhD thesis from the organizational culture area. The studies published in this issue of the Social Work Review end with the results of a research in the area of professional fatigue, carried out by Delia Vârgă and Loreni Elena Baciu.

The issue also includes a well documented review by Anda Rodideal on the work The Generational Welfare Contract, Justice, Institutions and Outcomes of the authors Simon Birnbaum, Tommy Ferrarini, Kenneth Nelson and Joakim Palme.

With the diversity of the presented research and the large number of specialists involved, we believe that this number has managed to address current issues, recent developments, challenges and vital responses to education, research and practice of contemporary social work.
