The RTS (Social Work Journal), published by the Official Association of Social Work of Catalonia (TSCAT), is a specialist journal that has been published every four months since 1960. Its aim is to help enhance professional action by conveying theoretical and practical knowledge along with critical, transformative reflection surrounding social intervention.

The RTS publishes articles on original research, theoretical projects and practical experiences associated with social work, social services and social policies.

Two issues a year are published, drawn up based on the free submission of articles, along with a third issue devoted to a relevant monographic topic from the present day. The articles are presented in Catalan and Spanish with the occasional article in English as well.
