Published by Policy Press, Policy & Politics is acknowledged as one the leading international peer reviewed journals in the field of public and social policy. It focuses on the interactions between policy and politics and spans theory and practice. The journal’s impact factor has been rising rapidly in recent years reflecting its aim of providing accessible content for academic scholars, policy makers and practitioners, and it is therefore closely aligned both with the PPIW’s mission and with Steve’s own research agenda and interests.
Speaking of his appointment, Steve said “I’m delighted to have been chosen by Policy & Politics to serve as co-editor. The journal has an enviable reputation for publishing high quality, policy relevant research for more than 40 years. I look forward to working with my co-editors and the journal’s editorial and management boards to ensure that it continues to lead academic debates and advance our understanding of the complex policy challenges facing governments around the globe.”
