Emerald announces winners of its 29th annual Literati Awards for Excellence

7th September 2022

For more than 25 years, Emerald Publishing has rewarded outstanding and impactful contributions to scholarly research through its prestigious Emerald Literati Awards.

The awards are one of the largest, independent award schemes led by a publisher. Established to celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions made by Emerald's scholarly community, these awards help strengthen the impact of the winning research and support the author's scholarly journey by providing the recognition and international kudos they deserve.

Judged by Emerald's journal and book series editorial boards based on the ability to demonstrate excellence and impact in their field, the awards fall into three categories:

  • Outstanding Papers – the backbone of the awards, this rewards the most impressive pieces of work published throughout the previous year.
  • Outstanding Reviewers – rewarding reviewers for ensuring that every paper published makes a genuine impact to the academic field.
  • Outstanding Author Contributions – rewards authors who have contributed something new and significant to their area of knowledge.

Sally Wilson, Publishing Director at Emerald, commented: "We value the hard work and commitment that goes into writing and reviewing high quality papers, so it is really important to us as a publisher to be able to celebrate and give global recognition to those who have made a significant impact within their field through our awards programme.

"We would like to congratulate all of this year’s winners, all of which have been chosen based on their research excellence, rigour and relevance."
