The SPA is delighted to announce that we have appointed new editors for the journal Social Policy & Society. Our recruitment process generated a very strong field of applicants and we are happy to say that Dr Ruby Chau and Dr Alessio D’Angelo (both from the School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham) have accepted the position. They will formally take up the reins in January 2021, and are shadowing the current editors Professor Majella Kilkey and Dr Liam Foster (both University of Sheffield) during 2020.
The SPA Exec and the journal team send our thanks to Liam and Majella for their very successful tenure, which included achieving the journal’s first Impact Factor in 2018 and publishing excellent themed sections in every issue.
On behalf of the recruitment panel, the journal and SPA, welcome Alessio and Ruby!
