Championing fresh thinking has been at the heart of the Emerald business for more than 50 years.
We’re a vibrant business full of energy and passion about making research count.
Going beyond the bounds of a traditional publisher, we want to be a facilitator of impact, encouraging equitable, healthy and sustainable research and publishing for all.
Who we are
Emerald Publishing is one of the world's leading digital-first publishers, commissioning, curating and showcasing research that can make a real difference.
We work with thousands of universities and business schools across the world to share knowledge and provoke the kind of debate that leads to positive change. We are passionate about people and doing things differently.
What makes us different
For over 50 years, championing fresh thinking has been at the heart of the Emerald business. Our goal is to help those in academia or people in practice work together to make a positive change in the real world.
While our roots are in publishing, we recognise our audiences need unique support, guidance and resources. The world of academia is under increasing pressure and expectation, and the traditional markers of influence such as citations are limited. Our role is to help challenge conventional ways of thinking, bringing people together to discover, curate and put into practice research that really matters.
How do we do this?
We don’t hide behind slogans or preach empty sentiment – we focus on meaningful, small steps that come together to create something powerful. Our author services help researchers to tell their story in a more meaningful way, exciting new formats bring research to life in our journals, cases studies and award-winning books, and new innovative platforms help disseminate research more widely. We support openness and transparency, and our drive for quality, instils trust and confidence.
Our values and independence fuel our passion for making a difference and bringing people together to create real impact in the real world. Because to us that’s how real change starts – one idea, one connection, one informed decision at a time.
The Emerald service charter
At Emerald we value supporting real impact through an equitable, sustainable community, underpinned by healthy practices, and delivered through a seamless customer experience.
What makes us proud
Being acknowledged by our industry for the positive work we are doing is really rewarding.
Most recently we were highly commended in the 2023 Alison Morrison Diversity and Inclusivity Award, part of the Independent Publishing Awards. The award recognises efforts to make our industry more diverse and inclusive, both internally and through the content that is published, with the judges commenting “Emerald is committing time and resources to making sure the workplace is inclusive. They’ve cemented inclusivity across the whole business.”
