CPA Publishing

CPA recognises the importance of influencing the formulation of public policy through the dissemination of findings from its work. CPA Publishing produces books, reports, briefing papers, codes of practice, occasional papers and selected reference titles from the Information Service. Not all of the output is from in-house work. Some publications are commissioned from outside sources or are the result of partnerships with sponsoring organisations. However, all materials reflect CPA's established reputation for quality and topicality of subject coverage.

The Representation of Older People in Ageing Research Series

The Centre for Policy on Ageing produces with the Centre for Ageing and Biographical Studies at The Open University a long standing series exploring both innovative and more traditional methodological approaches to ageing research.

Recent titles include Reflecting on User Involvement and Participatory Research edited by Sheila Peace and Jonathan Hughes, Oral History and Ageing edited by Joanna Bornat and Josie Tetley, and Researching Ageing and Multiple Discrimination, edited by Richard Ward and Bill Bytheway. New to the series are Coproduction? Working with existing older people's groups edited by Josie Tetley, Jacqueline Watts and Jill Reynolds and Secondary Analysis and reusing archived data in the context of ageing and biography edited by Joanna Bornat, Julia Johnson and Jill Reynolds.
