Impact of Research 2011

Awards for Excellence

About the Award

Emerald is exceedingly passionate about publishing research which has an impact; we do acknowledge however that impact cannot always be immediate.

In light of this for 2011 we have launched the Impact of Research Award. The winning papers must have been published before 2006 and could go back as far as the first issue of the first volume. Three journals have been chosen to pilot this inaugural award as they have made a significant subject-specific contribution.

We have rewarded one paper from each journal which the editors deem to have had the greatest impact in their field. The winning papers are seminal articles and can demonstrate impact on one or more of the headings below:

• The body of knowledge
• Practice
• Teaching and learning
• Public policy making
• Society and environment
• Economy

The winners are:
