Governance

Voluntary Sector Review is published by The Policy Press (TPP).  VSSN is grateful for TPP’s support in launching and marketing VSR.

The governance structure is designed to provide VSSN members with an active role in the journal, not only by publishing their work in it but also by participating in the elections to the Editorial Management Board, as candidates and voters. Elections to the Editorial Management Board are held annually and the results announced at the VSSN Annual General Meeting each autumn.
