Bristol University Press and Policy Press publish over 65 series, often working with specialist Associations and Societies to profile new research in their disciplines. Whether ground-breaking social commentary or the backbone of ongoing research projects, our Series are essential acquisitions for a library. As subscribers, any new additions to the series will be automatically flagged so new titles are never missed.

Access to our Series is included via Subject Collections; however, we have some of the most widely-used Series available to purchase as separate special Collections. If you have any questions about purchasing a specific series that isn’t listed, please contact
