Social Policy Review: Call for Expressions of Interest for New Editorial Team Members 2023-2025

Social Policy Review is inviting expressions of interest from colleagues to take on the role of editor for a three year term covering annual issues 36, 37 and 38.

Social Policy Review, published by Policy Press, provides an important resource for SPA members and the wider social policy academic community. The publication has traditionally included critical summaries of annual developments in key policy domains that can support teaching, learning and research, as well as selections of current cutting-edge research in Social Policy in the UK and internationally. In the past SPR has also included annual themed sections which focus on topics of interest. See

The appointed Editorial Team (normally three people) will be under contract to Policy Press and will report to the Social Policy Association Executive Committee. It is expected that the successful candidate/s will shadow/work in collaboration with the existing co-editors for a period of one year to ensure a smooth handover.
