And the winner of the IPG Frankfurt Book Fair Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year is...
Presented last night at a Gala Dinner staged at the Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire as part of the IPG's Annual Spring Conference, the award was collected by Alison Shaw, Director, and Julia Mortimer, Assistant Director.
The judges said: "Policy Press had a standout year in 2015, publishing a range of important, influential and well-reviewed books, experimenting with activities including short reads, apps and freemium content and hitting record turnover. It has increased sales and stepped up its publishing in a difficult market, and that takes a lot of nerve. It really punches above its weight."
