Emerald Partnership Award

Awards for Excellence

Publishing Partner 2012

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. Emerald’s 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 titles.

It is our pleasure to announce that the recipient of the Emerald Publishing Partnership Award for 2012 is:

The University Vocational Awards Council

The University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC) is a not-for-profit organization set up in 1999 by the higher and further education sector. UVAC provides an independent voice for members on matters relating to higher level vocational learning with a mission to champion higher level vocational learning.

UVAC has a membership of approximately 80 universities, colleges, corporate members and Lifelong Learning Networks, a strategic relationship with the Lifelong Learning Network National Forum and provides the secretariat to the Mixed Economy Group of Colleges.
Emerald is pleased to support the development of UVAC through partnering together to publish the 2011 launch journal, Higher Education, Skills and Work-based Learning. The new journal, edited by Professor Paul Gibbs of the Institute for Work Based Learning, Middlesex University publishes academic and scholarly practitioner-focused papers providing broad international coverage of issues, developments and innovation in higher level skills, higher level work-based learning and higher education.

The editorial policy of the journal is to facilitate relevant and rigorous national and international debate, research and practice that is impactful. The journal is targeted at academics researching in the area of higher level skills, training providers and work based learning practitioners who provide or support the delivery of higher level skills, those who direct policy at institutional and national levels and those whose learning is the focus of this effort.

The Publishing Partner award is given to UVAC in recognition of the ongoing support that both the Editor, the UVAC Board and the members of the Association have given to the new journal during its inaugural year.
