Research, Policy and Planning: The Journal of the Social Services Research Group

The latest edition (Vol33 – 3), published 06/07/2020, will sadly be the final one. However, there will be continued access to past editions on this website temporarily, before a final home is established.

Online access

The full text of Research, Policy and Planning, from 1999 onwards, can be downloaded from this webpage. Pre-1999 editions are available in PDF format – click here to access pre 1999 editions. RPP is an open access journal: all editions are immediately available to our readers and subscribers. We have taken this step in response to the recommendations of the Finch Report of 2012 which recommended open access to academic journals, and we also hope that by providing immediate access to current publications, authors may be better able to promote and disseminate their work.
