We believe everyone can make a real impact – join our blogs or visit us at one of the many industry wide events we attend worldwide.
Emerald Publishing is one of the world's leading digital first publishers, commissioning, curating and showcasing research that can make a real difference. We work with thousands of universities and business schools across the world to share knowledge and provoke the kind of debate that leads to positive change. We are a family business passionate about people and doing things differently.
For over 50 years, championing fresh thinking has been at the heart of the Emerald business. Our goal is to help those in academia or people in practice work together to make a positive change in the real world.
While our roots are in publishing, we recognise our audiences need unique support, guidance and resources. The world of academia is under increasing pressure and expectation, and the traditional markers of influence such as citations are limited. Our role is to help challenge conventional ways of thinking, bringing people together to discover, curate and put into practice research that really matters.
How do we do this?
We don’t hide behind slogans or preach empty sentiment – we focus on meaningful, small steps that come together to create something powerful. Our author services help researchers to tell their story in a more meaningful way, exciting new formats bring research to life in our journals, cases studies and award-winning books, and new innovative platforms help disseminate research more widely. We support openness and transparency, and our drive for quality, instils trust and confidence.
Our family values and independence fuel our passion for making a difference and bringing people together to create real impact in the real world. Because to us that’s how real change starts – one idea, one connection, one informed decision at a time.
We’re only going to be limited by our imagination. The great thing is that Emerald is a strong, principled business willing to lead positive change. A great model of family ownership, motivated by a deep-rooted desire to do the right thing by our communities, gives us freedom to move and experiment.
What makes us proud
Being acknowledged by our industry for the positive work we are doing is really rewarding.
We are particularly proud to have been named this year’s IPA ‘Independent Publisher of the Year, with the judges commenting 'There’s a great energy about Emerald, and you get a really good sense of what they want to achieve and how. They are a company that could be resting on its successes and set in its ways, but instead is screaming innovation, creativity and vision.'
