Meet the Editor
Catherine Gray, Senior Commissioning Editor
I came to work at Policy Press just under three years ago to develop the list of student learning resources, taking the lead on research methods publishing shortly after. I was at Palgrave Macmillan for many years before that, commissioning textbooks across a range of social science subjects.
There is nothing quite like being at the beginning of an idea and helping to shape it. Commissioning is an inherently collaborative process and it’s hugely satisfying to see the final product emerge and to get feedback on it. With vision, a commissioning editor can generate a real publishing legacy and that is a driving motivation for me.
