Rapid Responses

Social issues regularly arise that need social commentary interventions responding swiftly to events to influence thinking, research, policy and practice.

Our new Rapid Responses - 20-40k words long, digital-only and published just seven weeks from submission - aim to do just that, allowing authors to make a timely impact and influence thinking on current affairs. To achieve this short turnaround our Rapid Responses follow a bespoke process to help get this important research and commentary out into the world as quickly as possible in EPUB and ePDF formats.

Rapid Responses are written by international academics, policy makers and professionals, charity sector workers and activists to inspire and motivate by presenting alternative paths for social change.

If you are researching the pandemic and think your work would be a good fit, please get in touch with the Commissioning Editor for your subject area. If you think your work would benefit from a longer form, or a physical publication, you may be interested in our COVID-19 Collection.

Our Rapid Responses are also available on our Amazon Store.
