It can't be controlled as a title because it's not a title--it's a series-like phrase. It should be quoted in a 500 note in the bib record, not be in a 490/830.

The Name element (Undifferentiated personal name code = 008/32) is coded as "n" because the string "Routledge Focus" is tagged as a title; it is not tagged as a personal name. This element pertains only to personal names, not to corporate/meeting names or titles. This is documented at https://www.loc.gov/marc/authority/ad008.html
