Our awards

Celebrate the research community’s commitment to impact with our awards for interdisciplinary research, outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers, case writing competitions, and much more...

Real Impact Awards

The Real Impact Awards recognise the research community’s efforts to make a difference. We celebrate those that place impact at the top of their agenda and work in collaboration with others to achieve their goals.

Interdisciplinary Research Award

We are proud to offer a research grant for an interdisciplinary research project in the field of social sciences that has demonstrable real world impact.

Along with ‘impact’, ‘interdisciplinarity’ remains one of the most pressing concerns of the academy. We acknowledge that global problems cannot be solved by the work of a single discipline and require an interdisciplinary approach.

Literati Awards

For over 25 years the Emerald Literati Awards, which have included the Awards for Excellence and Citations of Excellence, celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers to scholarly research.

The criteria used to judge the awards are based on six areas that inform the development of our products: internationality; diversity; support for scholarly research; encouragement of applied research (impact); commitment to high quality scholarship; and a desire to ensure reader, author and customer experience is the best it can be.

Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards

Emerald partners with EFMD and the Higher Education Teaching and Learning Association (HETL) to recognise and reward exceptional doctoral research. It offers two annual international awards – Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards (ODRAs), and Emerald/Higher Education Teaching and Learning Association (HETL) Education Outstanding Doctoral Research Award.

Regional Research Fund Awards

We’re proud to sponsor many research funding initiatives throughout the world, actively promoting and rewarding research in management and library and information science (LIS), as well as funding for research projects.

Case Study Competitions

Emerald partners with a range of organisations to offer case writing competitions. Applying for an award opens the door to the possibility of receiving international recognition and a cash prize.

ICE Publishing Awards

Each year, we celebrate the best work published in our journals at the ICE Publishing Awards and make them free for you to read.
