Publishing with a purpose

Bristol University Press is a not-for-profit publisher of books for specialists, students and general readers. We are currently accepting proposals for monographs, edited collections and trade books in the field of economic history, and we are especially interested in work that intersects with the global social challenges agenda.

Paul Stevens, Senior Commissioning Editor

I joined Bristol University Press in 2017, having spent several years publishing psychology and linguistics books with Palgrave Macmillan. I started my career at Cambridge University Press and have worked in a variety of publishing roles across the social sciences and humanities.

While every book is the product of an author’s vision and perseverance, I firmly believe that good publishing is about collaboration. Starting with the initial pitch and proposal, I enjoy working closely with my authors to help shape their ideas and ensure that the books realise their full potential. It’s a privilege to be able to do this at a press which values quality over quantity, and that’s unafraid to try some different things along the way.
