Patrick Brindle got his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1998. At Cambridge he taught courses in research methods, the social sciences and history. Patrick also supervised numerous student research projects and dissertations.
Patrick took the step of moving to publishing in 2000. He has held a number of editorial roles at Pearson Education, Oxford University Press and SAGE Publications. He has worked on academic books, textbooks, journals and on online content and video.
At SAGE, Patrick was Publisher for Research Methods, Publisher for the Social Sciences, and Publisher for Online Content. He also co-established and managed a team of development editors whose job was to work closely with authors to improve the accessibility, style and market-readiness of their manuscripts.
Over 15 years in editorial, Patrick has worked with hundreds of social science scholars and researchers on their texts and has witnessed and dealt with every kind of writing problem (and excuse) in the proverbial book.
Patrick is now the founder and director of Into Content Limited, and is Visiting Lecturer at City University, London, where he lectures on publishing.
