Passionate about real impact, and proud winner of the IPG's Publisher of the year 2020

Research that makes a difference

We publish mission led social science research that tackles key societal challenges aligned with the UN SDGs. In doing so we work with academics who collaborate across disciplines & countries, and with industry and government, to publish research that influences thinking, changes policies, and positively makes a difference to lives beyond the walls of academia.

Our goals

Break the norm

Social and economic inequalities between and within countries are widening due to COVID-19. To build a fairer and more equitable world we need to tackle these disparities, and bring together thinking across disciplines and sectors to solve real world challenges.

A message from our Chief Executive Officer

COVID-19: we're here to help

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we’re ensuring that the physical and mental well-being of everyone we work with is our top priority. Although our physical offices have been closed for over a year now, we have remained very much open and are more determined than ever to support the communities we exist to serve. 

We realise that in this uncertain time, people around the world need quick and easy access to the information we publish on Emerald Insight and opportunities to share their research. However, given the worsening situation in India, and the impact on our publishing partners, there may be some disruption to our normal publishing times. As always, the health and safety of our colleagues and partners remains paramount, and thank you for your patience during this exceptionally difficult time.


Supporting our communities on their open journey

In an interconnected world where complex problems continue to abound, having access to vital research can literally be a matter of life or death.

Shelley Allen, Emerald’s Head of Open Research, shares the steps we are taking in partnership with our communities to progress open access and open participation
