Anniversary Celebrations: 25 years of publishing with a purpose
This year we are celebrating 25 years since Policy Press was established and 5 years since the creation of Bristol University Press.
Voluntary Sector Review
Voluntary Sector Review (VSR) is published by Policy Press in association with the Voluntary Sector Studies Network (VSSN). It publishes accessible, high-quality peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of the voluntary, community, civil society and third sectors.
A unique feature of the VSR is the combination of papers aimed at academic, policy and practice audiences. This is designed to ensure that the results of the latest academic research are made available to the widest possible audience and are grounded in a close engagement with both policy and practical issues.

Submit your article
VSR is an explicitly interdisciplinary and international journal - the first to be European based. We welcome contributions from authors from all disciplines and all countries.
The scope of submissions includes, but is not limited to, such topics as the origins and nature of volunteering, the experiences of user groups, social activism, social movements, philanthropy, the growth and performance of charitable foundations, community organisations, social enterprises, and the relationship between voluntary organisations and the state.
