Information for Librarians
We recognise that, as a librarian, you are key to the purchasing and management of many of the resources we publish. We’ve tried to make life easier for you by bringing together the information you might find useful here, as we know that you never have enough time!
We publish six social science journals: The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice, Policy & Politics, Evidence & Policy, Voluntary Sector Review, Families, Relationships and Societies and Critical and Radical Social Work. Find out how you can save money on your subscriptions with our journals collections. You can also view a pricelist for individual journal subscriptions and the journal collections here. By going to Policy Press journals online you can also find out about setting up online access. You can also read our online site licence (PDF, 16 kb) and our self-archiving and open access policy.
We are rapidly expanding the number of titles we publish as eBooks and the channels you can buy them through – see the main eBooks section for further details.
You can also browse all our books and journals using the links above.
Don’t forget our latest flyers and catalogues are available to download too. To keep up to date with all our latest books and journals information, why not join our mailing list?
We would welcome your feedback or comments on any aspect of our work, including ideas for any other information you’d like to see here – please email email@example.com.
PorticoPolicy Press is pleased to announce that our journals are now available in Portico which provides a permanent archive of electronic scholarly journals in the event of loss of access to online resources. Libraries will have campus-wide access to archived content when specific trigger events occur and titles are no longer available from us or our online journals host Ingenta.
Policy Press Scholarship Online
Policy Press at the University of Bristol is delighted to announce that it is partnering with Oxford University Press to launch Policy Press Scholarship Online/PPSO on OUP’s recently-launched University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform. PPSO is set to launch in March 2012, with nearly 300 digital titles across three major subject areas: sociology, social work and public health and epidemiology. UPSO is an expansion of Oxford Scholarship Online (OSO), the press’s groundbreaking online platform, and brings together the best scholarly publishing from around the world. Delivering academic monograph content from leading international university presses, UPSO offers an unparalleled research tool, making disparately published scholarship easily accessible, highly discoverable, and fully cross-searchable via a single online platform.
