Awards for Excellence

Emerald Partnership Award – Publishing Partner 2008

The objective of Emerald’s Publishing Partnerships programme is to work with other organisations to increase the dissemination of practical management research content through a variety of initiatives. Emeralds’ Partnerships include, amongst others, professional Associations wishing to enhance their membership benefits through the provision of high quality scholarly research; subject-specific web sites and database services wanting to complement their existing product offerings; and republication and translation rights agreements which make scholarly research more accessible to new markets. Emerald Publishing Partnerships strive to enhance and extend the journal portfolio by combining Emerald’s publishing expertise with the subject specialities of other organizations to launch top-quality and sustainable new journals.

It is our pleasure to announce that the recipient of the Emerald Publishing Partnership Award for 2008 is:

The Institute of Place Management

Its founders and staff have proved themselves to be excellent partners to Emerald during the pre-launch year of the Journal of Place Management and Development, the journal developed in partnership with the IPM and launched as its official journal in 2008. The Institute team has worked closely with Emerald to promote the journal throughout the IPM membership and the wider community of researchers and practitioners and, thanks to combined efforts it has been very well received.

The considerable pre-launch and ongoing promotion that Emerald has undertaken as part of the new launch process has been equally matched by that of the Institute team. We were given exceptional opportunities to promote the journal and Emerald at the Institute’s inaugural conference in February this year and it was a pleasure to sponsor the official launch reception for the Journal and IPM and prior to the conference. Throughout the launch process and in the run-up to the publication of the first issue of JPMD in March 08, the Institute’s Editorial Team consisting of Cathy Parker, Simon Quin, John Byrom and Gareth Roberts, with the added assistance of the Institute’s management team led by Dan McGrath and Matt Davis, has been enthusiastic and as determined to see JPMD become a success as we are at Emerald.

Online access to the Journal is included as a benefit to members of the IPM, and a separate agreement is in place to provide members with access to selected Emerald articles as part of the Institute’s E-Academy. This effectively means that the Journal and other Emerald content is being made available to a new audience of hundreds of researchers and practitioners in the UK and overseas. As the content is regularly updated, it means that Emerald is directly contributing to members and non-members alike returning to the Institute site on a regular basis. The Journal has already become a central benefit in attracting new Institute members and retaining existing ones.

On the IPM website, it states ‘Linking the worlds of the practitioner, academic and policy maker, IPM hopes to establish an international network of people committed to making neighborhoods, towns, cities and retail districts the best they can possibly be’. It is our shared commitment to strengthening the link between the worlds of practical action and academic research, on an international level, and working towards the common good, that makes the Institute a worthy winner of this year’s Emerald Partnership Award.
