Annually, the Journal of Public Child Welfare issues an Article of the Year Award. Nancy Rolock’s article “Tuning in to Teens (TINT) with Adoptive Parents and Guardians in the US: The Replication Phase of Intervention Research” was selected from the 2021 volume to receive Honorable Mention. Rolock is the Henry L. Zucker Associate Professor in Social Work Practice and Associate Dean for Research and Training.
The selection committee noted that this year’s selection was especially difficult and believed Rolock’s paper should be recognized.
The selection committee reviewed articles published for the year, using the following criteria:
- Scientific merit and quality of research;
- Timeliness of topic for child welfare and potential to inspire new insights or change current thinking;
- Potential to contribute to child welfare knowledge, practice, policy and/or future research; and
- Organization and clarity of ideas.
