The role
This booklet is intended for Editorial Advisory Board members,
Editorial Review Board members and others who are involved
either editorially or otherwise with the journal. Its aim is to
provide suggestions and advice for people to help support both
their editor in their day-to-day journal duties and the journal
itself. We hope you will find some practical ideas about different
ways you can support your journal, including general promotion,
sourcing papers, writing for the journal, using your networks
and helping to develop the journal to increase both intrinsic and
perceived quality. Emerald also provides some tangible tools
and resources for our editorial contributors and we hope that by
working together, we can ensure the long-lasting success of your
Specific tasks and responsibilities are likely to include some or
all of the following:
• Advising the Editor on matters of journal development e.g.
editorial scope and focus of the journal, appointment of new
EAB members, relevant conferences and promotional
opportunities, market insights
• Acting as a referee/reviewer of papers. Prompt and speedy
return of reviews is particularly welcomed
• Encouraging the submission of articles (written by self or
contacts). This is particularly helpful for sourcing papers in
other regions or ensuring that the full subject remit of the
journal is covered
We welcome feedback, particularly from our editors and
Editorial Advisory Board members, so please take the
opportunity to let us know how Emerald can further assist you in
your editorial role. Contact details can be found at the back of
this booklet.
• Providing occasional guest editorials/viewpoints/
• Guest editing special or themed issues for the journal
• Writing book reviews
If you would like to be involved in any of these activities, then
please contact your Editor or Publisher to see how you can help.
• Representing and promoting the journal at conferences and
to interested colleagues and contacts. Emerald will support
any venture of this nature by supplying leaflets and sample
copies, etc. for distribution at the conference
Being an Editorial Advisory Board member
What is an Editorial Advisory Board (EAB)?
• Feeding back helpful criticism and information to the Editor to
assist in the development and direction of the journal.
An EAB adds academic integrity and standing to a journal,
benefiting its reputation. It is composed of a group of subject
matter experts who act as advisers to the Editor on matters of
journal development, as well as reviewers of papers submitted
to the journal. Most EAB members are:
There are numerous benefits to sitting on an EAB. These include:
• Career enhancement and personal profile raising
• Established academics/researchers and practitioners of
repute who are well known and often cited
• Gaining experience in preparation for taking an editorship
• Academics from leading institutions in the subject field or
practitioners from high profile companies
• Access to the latest research in your field prior to publication
• Up-and-coming, active academics and practitioners.
• Your name being listed within each issue of the journal, thus
increasing your profile and enhancing reputation
• Making a positive contribution to the body of knowledge
In terms of geographical location, the EAB should reflect the
journal focus and market, so that every international journal
should have an international EAB. If a journal has a regional
focus, the composition of the Board should reflect this. The
most successful journals tend to have an EAB comprising
members who make an active contribution.
• Retention of any books reviewed for the journal
• Conference organizers often give favourable consideration to
an official application by an editorial team member for a
complimentary press pass.
The Editor passes comments from the reviewers back to the
author, particularly when rejection or revision is advised. In
theory, neither the authors nor the reviewers know each other’s
identity, thus ensuring impartiality. Acknowledging the time
demands made on reviewers, it is particularly helpful if the
reviewer can be as detailed and as helpful as possible in their
review which will help contribute to a better quality of paper for
publication. Obviously, constructive criticism and a well
considered review will benefit the author and help to cement
the journal’s reputation as providing a positive publishing
Editorial involvement and supporting the
Sourcing papers
EAB members have been recruited to the journal, in part, due to
their subject specialties and standing in the field. Why not turn
this to the journal’s advantage and use this opportunity to
source high quality papers? The papers should reflect leading
international research and thinking in the field. Work with your
Editor to ensure you are looking for the right type of content
both in terms of subject matter, quality of research,
geographical focus and format e.g. full research papers, case
studies, literature reviews, book reviews, etc. Use your
networks, ask your colleagues, make the most from the
conferences you attend. There are a variety of ways you can
support your journal, the benefits being more diverse and richer
editorial content and also making your Editor’s life so much
It would help the journal enormously if reviewers can either
adhere to the deadline given by the Editor or can offer some
indication of when the Editor can expect to receive the review.
Prompt reviewing is an extremely important part of this role: it
helps the Editor meet the publisher’s deadlines thus ensuring
publication on time; it benefits the author by reducing the time
to citation and gives the author a positive publishing experience
that, in turn, will increase the reputation of your journal; and
also benefits the journal by publishing up-to-the-minute
research and so increasing its prestige and standing.
How Emerald can help
Through our extensive networks, we can issue calls for papers,
contact previous authors or authors who have written for related
journals. We can supply you with leaflets, posters and hard copy
calls for papers for circulation at your workplace or for
dissemination through your networks. All submission details
and other useful information about your journal can be found at
the journal homepage on Emerald’s web site at
Another way to support your editor is to recommend other
reviewers who may have additional subject specialties or may
be proactive and eager to sit on an EAB.
How Emerald can help
Reviewing papers
Whilst most editors have successful and established systems of
their own, Emerald can provide reviewer checklists and basic
points for consideration when reviewing a paper.
Most Editors will expect their EAB to be involved in the peerreview process. This is an independent quality control
mechanism for articles submitted to journals. It is recognized
that peer review in the majority of journals is essential and
demonstrates that publishers, editors and their teams have
done all that is possible to ensure that a paper has real value,
accuracy, academic integrity and is presented in such a way that
meets the objectives of the journal and the needs of its readers.
Most journals run a double-blind peer-review system where all
information on the paper which identifies the author is removed
and the paper is then sent to two or more reviewers for objective
Emerald has adopted an online submission and peer review
system called Manuscript Central. At the time of writing, more
than 20 Emerald journals are using this system. Manuscript
Central benefits Emerald’s editors and reviewers in the following
• The slow and cumbersome paper-based system is
streamlined, administration minimized and visibility and
transparency maximized
The quality of the review is crucial to the final quality of the
journal, so it is important that the reviewers provide
constructive criticism of papers and look for the positive aspects
of any paper. Over-critical comments without suggestions for
improvement or revision are not helpful. Reviewers judge the
paper against some or all of the following criteria:
• Editors can check the status of all articles and work-inprogress quickly and simply
• Does the article contribute anything new to the body of
• Detailed management data can be generated on journal
• Are the arguments employed valid?
• Submission rates should increase due to making paper
submission easier for the authors.
• The chasing of copyright assignment forms will not be
necessary due to the use of digital signatures. This will reduce
any delays caused by the need for a handwritten signature
• Is the article easy to read?
• Do the arguments flow logically?
Please check with your Editor to see if your journal is benefiting
from Manuscript Central.
• Is the methodology sound?
• Are there clear implications for practice or suggestions for
future research?
Also, Emerald has introduced an Outstanding Reviewer Award
for each journal. Your editor has the opportunity to nominate
one member from their EAB or pool of reviewers based on
various criteria, such as reviewer performance, contribution to
raising the journal’s awareness, editorial support, etc.
• Are the conclusions strong?
• Does the paper pay due credit to previously published work in
the field?
• Sourcing, reviewing and providing appropriate content for the
Special Issue
Writing for the journal
You can do this in a number of ways by writing full articles, book
reviews, viewpoints, commentaries, guest editorials and other
content which your editor suggests. Remember, you have been
invited on to the EAB because of your standing in the field and
are perceived to be an important and esteemed addition to the
editorial team. Why not share your knowledge and skills further
with your subject community and write for your journal? The
personal benefits of publication are also manifold, such as
increasing your profile, progressing your subject area and
highlighting your institution. Once you have been published you
will automatically receive a complimentary copy of the journal
plus five reprints (and an opportunity to order further reprints).
Reprints can help build awareness and generate visibility of the
author and their institution or business. Use your reprint as:
• Appointing and reviewing the list of reviewers
• Arranging and managing the peer-review system and using
Emerald’s Manuscript Central system, if appropriate
• Maintaining and developing the quality of the content
• Promoting the Special Issue at relevant conferences and to
interested colleagues, where appropriate
• Meeting the deadlines for delivery of the manuscripts to
When putting together a Special Issue, some criteria you may
wish to think about include:
• Internationality in content and authorship
• Circulation material at conferences and exhibitions
• Leading-edge content and originality
• An attachment for your résumé to highlight your academic
• Broad subject interest appeal
• An original way to distribute your research findings to
colleagues and students
• Consistency in the papers either through a commonality of
approach of theme or their comparative nature
• Display materials for your reception area, office or library.
• Authors being active and important figures in the field
Emerald can also customise reprints by including course notes,
photographs and logos, as required. For further information on
Emerald reprints and ideas for how to use them to their full
advantage, see for further
• A well-written guest editorial which exhibits real
understanding of the value and importance of the issue.
In line with all of our editorial contributors, once you have guest
edited a Special Issue you will receive a complimentary copy of
the journal. Post-publication, you may also want to think about
how you can publicize the Special Issue using your networks
and outlets.
How Emerald can help
A full range of free resources for authors is available at Whilst most beneficial to less
experienced authors, practical advice and tips for publishing
success can be useful for authors at all stages of their career.
We can also help you find potential research partners or other
people interested in your subject area. We can find contacts
from our Emerald Literati Network or you can search yourself via
Connections ( a free-toall, easy to use online meeting place for the academic and
corporate research communities, providing the opportunity for
researchers to present their own work and interests and meet
other researchers for future projects.
How Emerald can help
A guide for guest editing a Special Issue is available from your
Publisher. We will also help circulate calls for papers and can
provide the Guest Editors with leaflets and posters for
distribution through their networks. Emerald also heavily
publicizes Special Issues through the Emerald Shop
( The Shop offers for sale a
range of products, including Special Issues. We hope the Shop
will help to further enhance the dissemination of Special Issues,
citation of articles and, of course, encourage even more
researchers to submit articles to the journal for future
publication. Special Issues are also highlighted in the Emerald
Fulltext database, and in combination with our PR efforts, we
aim for maximum impact in the relevant subject community.
Guest editing a Special Issue
This is a prestigious role where you can bring your experience
and knowledge to the fore. Most scholarly journals publish
Special Issues from time to time as part of the journal volume
offering. Special Issues draw together a range of contributions
on a given theme and allow for more in-depth treatment of a
topic than is normally possible within a single journal issue.
Special Issues are often, though not always, devoted to
investigating emerging or “hot” topics, or to exploring
alternative perspectives on familiar themes.
Judging papers for the Emerald Awards for Excellence
Each year, every journal editor is asked to nominate one
Outstanding Paper Award and up to three Highly Commended
Awards from the previous year’s volume. The awards are
announced in April and are then promoted heavily through
Emerald’s PR networks, journals and web site. Winning an
award is a real boost to authors, particularly those who may be
starting out on their academic lives. Participating in the Awards
for Excellence benefits the journal in many ways. As Emerald
tries to confer these awards at major global conferences, the
associated PR really raises the journal’s profile on an
international stage. The main aims of these awards are to:
Editing Special Issues allows Guest Editors to gain valuable firsthand experience of editing a publication and is a good trial run
for those ambitious to edit their own journal one day. Editing a
good Special Issue may also enhance significantly a Guest
Editor’s academic or professional standing amongst his or her
peers. The role of the Guest Editor involves the following:

If you receive papers which may not be relevant to your journal,
please forward them on to another Emerald editor (contact
details to be found on the journal homepage) or to your
Publisher who may be able to place the paper elsewhere.
• Build on the relationships between the author, the journal’s
editorial team and the publisher and raise the profile of both
the journal and the editorial team.
Many of our editors truly value the help they receive from their
EAB in terms of judging and nominating these outstanding
papers. Emerald encourages each editor to involve their editorial
team in this process, so please take advantage of this
opportunity. Please contact your Editor to see how you can get
involved. Also, why not try and help promote the winners of your
journal’s awards? For example, listservs, internet newsgroups
and other newsletters are excellent tools to disseminate the
good news. Are you a member of any professional body which
would be interested? Are the winners from your own institution?
If you have any suggestions for new journal launches, we would
be very happy to hear from you. Please contact Vicky Williams
([email protected]) with your proposal.
Emerald Literati Network
“The Emerald Literati Network is a tangible expression of
commitment by Emerald to our authors and editors. Our aim is
to be the world’s best and most comprehensive online resource
for scholarly authors and researchers worldwide. The Network
aims to support Emerald’s mission to be the publisher of choice
in management, library services and engineering. We aim always
to work in partnership with our contributing partners and
promote their best interests.”
Who knows, if you write for the journal yourself, guest edit a
Special Issue or even provide an outstanding contribution to the
journal in some way, you may even win one of these prestigious
awards yourself!
The Emerald Literati Network comprises more than 35,000
subject experts and researchers in the form of Emerald authors,
editors and EAB members. We firmly believe in our author
community and seek to show this by investing in academic
research, providing a comprehensive collection of author
resources and offering tangible member benefits. We seek to
build an interactive network of experts, a true research
community. The Network can be used to source papers for
publication or to locate key people for the editorial team. Please
contact Mark Hindwell ([email protected]) to see
how this Network can help your journal.
In addition, Emerald also organizes awards for the most
outstanding contribution made by a reviewer. Each editor has
the opportunity to nominate one member from their EAB or
reviewer pool, the winner receives an award and gains official
recognition not only in their subject community but on a global
How Emerald can help

Gaining market intelligence and feeding back to the Editor
Feeding back helpful criticism/information to the Editor assists
in the development and direction of the journal. EAB members
can provide a broader geographic focus and remit through
sourcing papers specifically from their region. An EAB member
can help to strengthen the journal’s coverage of a certain
specialized subject area and provides the journal with another
voice and fresh perspective. As with all of these ideas,
enthusiasm for the task in hand is vital for its success.

Research Award) to the winner(s), either at an Emerald event or
other opportunity.
Come and meet Emerald staff at the exhibition stand. Bring a
colleague or introduce us to significant people in your network
who you think we should be talking to.
If you are presenting your research or organizing an event
yourself, take copies of the journal with you for circulation.
Emerald will be more than happy to send some complimentary
leaflets or copies of the journal to your event. Perhaps you can
think of other ways to use the journal leaflets or posters, such
as circulating to delegates.
Using your networks
EAB members of academic associations or professional bodies
can enable access for editors and EAB members to member
lists, conference delegates, etc. whom they can contact with
ideas for writing up papers. Consider how membership
associations like the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, the
Australian Institute of Management or the Global Alliance of
Rapid Prototyping Associations can licence topical and relevant
content from your journal to benefit their members. By
introducing Emerald to potential partners you can help to
formally link your journal with the most prestigious
organisations in your field. What’s more, this kind of partnership
is the ideal way to immediately reach your key target readership,
who may also aspire to publish their research. Additionally,
most membership associations now hold annual conferences.
What better promotional opportunity than for delegates to
receive printed proceedings from Emerald in association with
your journal?
Conferences are, of course, an integral part of sourcing relevant
papers and can be used to distribute calls for papers for
upcoming Special Issues. Talk to some of the researchers after
they have presented their findings; attend relevant sessions
where opportunities to commission papers are strong; approach
keynote speakers and consult the delegates’ list.
Best Paper Awards
Presenting a Best Paper Award at a conference is a great way to
recognize formally the value of quality research within your field
as well as raising the profile of your journal. Conference
organizers are generally happy to include an award in their
proceedings as it provides additional value to the conference.
These awards can take the form of a plaque, certificate or a
book token. You should consult with your Publisher prior to
making any arrangements to agree on the nature of the award.
Publishers will be responsible for providing any prizes for
Calls for papers can be posted on to the internet, listservs and
other newsgroups which Emerald does not have access to. EAB
members can also promote journal-specific news stories at their
workplace or institution, for example, via internal newsletters,
staff and student noticeboards, pigeonholes, etc.
To set up a journal Best Paper Award, contact the conference
organizer directly or consult your Editor and EAB to see if they

Presenting an Author Workshop
Author Workshops are aimed at helping authors progress
successfully through the various stages from pre-submission of
the manuscript, to revision and, finally, publication. Author
Workshops can feature presentations, Q&A sessions and, time
and presenter permitting, individual clinic sessions. Author
Workshops are important because:

Citation and usage
Usage is a measure of how often a paper has been downloaded
from the online environment. Publishers spend much time and
investment in measuring the usage of a journal and database.
Traditionally, this has been of most importance to the librarian
as it is a measure of how often the journal is being used and
read and provides a value for money measure. Obviously,
increasing usage is of paramount importance to the publisher as
small usage figures can be a factor in libraries cancelling their
subscription, which is also bad news for the journal and its
editorial team.
Citation and usage are two separate issues but are linked as
they are both types of measurement of a journal’s impact and
perceived success. Citation is of importance to the research
community, particularly to the author of the published work. It is
important for the author to try and get their research published
as soon as possible in order for their work to contribute to the
body of knowledge and be cited as early as possible. This is
already important in the STM field but is gaining momentum in
the management and LIS areas. Citation of an author’s work
raises their profile and adds validation to their research. It is
important for the journal to publish papers which are highly
cited as it increases the perceived quality of the journal.
Increasingly, usage is becoming important to the author as it
indicates the level of interest in the work and can provide some
indication of its overall importance in the subject field.
Hopefully this will then lead to increased citation of that work. It
can also be a great morale boost to authors as it gives tangible
evidence that their work is achieving strong dissemination and
is being read, particularly in the online environment, the world
One measure of citation which is perceived to measure the
success of the journal is the ISI (now Thomson Scientific)
ranking. This is a list of the most highly cited journals in the
world and is by far the most respected and internationally
recognized. Its rankings can determine who reads a journal, who
writes for it and what funding a department has can be judged
on its contributions to ISI-listed journals. Whilst it has a heavy
North American bias – the vast majority of the most cited
authors in ISI in the last 20 years are from the USA – it
represents a badge of achievement on the global academic
Ways in which EAB members can contribute to increasing the
usage of their journal:
• Send Tables of Contents to relevant listservs.
• Sign up to Emerald ToC alerts to see when your journal issue
has been published. Encourage this with any authors who are
currently in the process of publishing with us.
ISI Toolkit
Our EAB members can play a vital role in helping their journal
either gain inclusion in the ISI rankings or increase its impact
• Encourage people to read your journal by inserting a journalspecific signature on your e-mail.
1. Strategy to “build” citations. It is important to identify ISI’s
likely source of journals – the top-ranked ones it uses for
citations – and know which ones are more likely to publish
articles that cite references from the Emerald journal. From
this, the Editor and EAB members can identify regular authors
and send them relevant sample articles from their journal – it
is hoped these authors would then cite papers from your
journal in their own work. Once identified, these academics
could be contacted through listservs, with articles made
available online for a limited period.
• Send sample articles or your complimentary copy to students,
colleagues or key influencers within your institution or at
other institutions you have contacts in.
• Disseminate calls for papers using your networks. This will
not only help source papers for the journal but also generate
• Work with your librarian or within your faculty to see how you
can help increase usage of your journal and so raise the
profile of your institution.
2. Many journals are successfully listed in the ISI rankings due
to “popular demand”. This consists of top quality authors and
EAB members writing to ISI to request an explanation as to
why the journal is not listed. If your journal is not listed in the
ISI rankings, why not use the “Recommend a journal for
coverage” facility on the ISI web site at:
• Present an author workshop to stimulate interest and get
people using the journal online.
• If you are aware of any particularly important papers which

How Emerald can help
Emerald currently has nearly 40 journals listed in ISI. Emerald
staff are in constant contact with ISI and are seeking to increase
the number of ISI-listed journals with a year-on-year rolling
programme of applications from its top journals. Publishers are
continuously monitoring the progress of their journals to ensure
their quality is reflected in the international arena that ISI
provides. Publishers would be delighted to be involved with any

Tips for helping authors increase usage and citation of their
Authors need to help make electronic dissemination and
citation of their work easier by considering how the article will
be found, read and, therefore, cited. Here are some facts:
• 25 times as many users find their articles by searching rather
than by browsing
• In the search results list, users will see the article title in the
first instance
• If the article has no DOI number, a link can be constructed
using the Standard Item and Contribution Identifier (SICI)
method. The following information is needed:
• Users will base their decision on whether to read or download
the work based on the title. Therefore, a good title is
important to ensure your article will be considered. It needs
to describe what the paper is actually about.
• Journal ISSN, including the dash
• Year of publication
• Volume and issue numbers
Getting the paper to the top of the search list
• Page number at which the article starts.
• Think about the words and phrases that a user might enter to
find the article.
• The link will follow the format:
linker&reqidx=issnnumber(yyyy) Note the
capital “L” after the issue number.
• Search engines rank the relevancy of an article based on
whether the user’s search word or phrase is used in the title,
keywords and abstract and how many times it is used in the
body of the article.
How Emerald can help
Increasing dissemination, citation and usage of Emerald’s
articles and journals is one of our main priorities. Currently, our
journals are read in more than 1,600 institutions world-wide,

Corporate philosophy
About Emerald
As the world’s leading English language publisher of academic
and professional literature, Emerald strives to be the publisher
of choice for academics, researchers and professionals in the
fields of management, library services and engineering. Our
focus on theory into practice, we believe, sets us apart from
others – it means that all Emerald journals publish papers
which have a direct application to the world of work. It means
that we ask editors and review board members to focus on
application, and beneficial implication of theory for practice. It
means that we focus our journals on the needs of authors and
readers – the applied researcher, the reflective practitioner, the
students and faculty of business, and the MBA School.
Emerald was established in 1967 by a group of senior
academics who, dissatisfied with the international publishing
outlets of the time, formed an alternative publishing house that
focused on niche management disciplines including strategy,
change management, and international marketing.
Information available at the click of a button and publishing in
electronic format are commonplace today – and yet it was only
12 years ago that Emerald launched the online digital collection
of journals as a database. The move was seen as pioneering
and helped to shape the future of the company thereafter. The
name of that database was Emerald (the Electronic Management
Research Library Database) and in 2001 it was adopted as the
name for the company.
The Emerald Literati Network – an Emerald exclusive – extends
to contributors and editors helpful resources, advice and
guidance along every step of the article production process. We
take pride in our high standards of writing and research,
ensuring that our published literature and database products
are world-class and noteworthy.
Emerald has grown into an important journal publisher on the
world stage. The company currently publishes over 180 journals
and employs more than 190 people. Emerald has always
stressed the importance of internationality and relevance to
practice in its publishing philosophy. These two principles
remain the corner-stones of our editorial objective. The link
between the organization and academe that was so crucial in
the foundation of the company continues to influence corporate
thinking; we uphold the principle of theory into practice.
Emerald LibraryLink is a comprehensive online resource for
librarians, information professionals and knowledge managers
to use in their daily efforts to bridge the gap between
information management theory and practice. It seeks to
improve information and resource management skills, publish
research using our practical guides and improve library
marketing skills.
As an internationally recognised publisher, Emerald is guided by
the following principles:
Emerald for Deans is an online resource dedicated to supporting
senior managers and administrators in management education.
Articles cover funding, alumni management, staff recruitment,
retention, global issues, partnerships and collaborations –
indeed anything that is considered topical and relevant to those

4. Committed to theory and practice and application of
management research
Emerald: our publishing policy and
Our policy: “Committed to theory and practice” means that we
ask editors and review board members to focus on application,
and beneficial implication of theory for practice. This reflects
the need of our suppliers and consumers – the applied
researcher, the reflective practitioner, the students of business
and their faculty, the MBA schools.
Our publishing policy makes us different and unique amongst
scholarly publishers. It is based on eight core principles, all of
which inter-relate to form our distinctive philosophy:
1. Internationality
Our policy: “International” means that we are never parochial.
We encourage excellence wherever in the world it originates. We
set targets for international representation of our journal
contributors, and we measure our performance against these
targets. We also set targets for themed issues that take a
specific international perspective on a subject, topic or industry.
This is because we operate in a transnational world of scholarly
ideas and we believe that encouraging authors from all parts of
the world creates a richer and more valuable ecology of
knowledge and scholarship that will benefit all our constituents.
All Emerald journals publish papers which have a direct
application to the world of work.
5. Committed to high quality journal publishing
Our policy: “High quality” means that all papers published by
Emerald go through a quality-assured review system. All papers
published by Emerald journals make, in some way, an explicit
original contribution to the existing body of knowledge. All
papers published by Emerald journals are accessible to a wide
range of students, scholars and practitioners in the fields in
which we publish – and are beneficial in some way to
researchers, to practitioners, or to both.
In 2006 we published more than 58 issues with a specific
international theme.
In 2006, 7,068 papers from 117 different countries were
36 Emerald journals are Thomson Scientific-listed.
2. Diversity
6. Dedicated to continuous improvement of reader, author and
customer experience
Our policy: “Diversity” means that we seek – and actively
encourage – excellence, wherever it is. We ask some editors to
take a section within a journal to cover practitioner-authored
papers, or new researchers’ papers, or to specifically encourage
such papers. We set targets, and ask for (and measure) special
issues on interdisciplinary approaches, or new/emergent
themes. We do so because this gives us better, stronger and
more vibrant journals, and a clear leadership position in our
industry – to help us to be the “publisher of choice” for our
target authors, end users and customers.
Our policy: Continuous improvement means that we are never
satisfied with the status quo. We ask “Are we as good as we
could be?” in our effort to improve reader, author and customer
experience. We continue to invest in enabling technology to
increase efficiency and effectiveness in content and customer
acquisition, servicing and management. We benchmark against
others’ and against our own standards. We are as clear as
possible in our policies, measures, targets and achievements
and we do not hide shortfalls, but confront and learn from them.
In the past year we published more than 26 themed issues
dealing with interdisciplinary approaches to a subject or
Emerald retains the status of an ISO 9001:2000 certified
production process, in recognition of adherence to quality
systems and processes when preparing print journals.
We encourage themed issues on leading edge and innovative
research topics, and in the past 12 months published some 51
such issues.
Emerald retains the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation. IIP is
a business improvement tool designed to advance an
organisation’s performance through its people.
3. Supporting scholarly research
We were judged as being Best Customer Service provider by the
scholarly library publication The Charleston Advisor.
Our policy: Emerald seeks to make the process of getting
research to publication more transparent by providing help and
advice on the process via our online contributor community
portal, the Literati Network. We provide a service to authors
whose first language is not English. We do so in order to help
remove barriers to publication and to reinforce our policy of
diversity and internationality for customers, end users and
Emerald is COUNTER-compliant, meeting the international code
of practice for reports that allow clients to measure usage of
online information products and services in a consistent
7. Copyright
Our policy: Our industry-leading copyright policy combines the
protection of rights, benefits for authors and readers along with
high levels of service for anyone seeking to use published
We give papers at conferences which address scholarly
publishing themes, and provide author workshops for
Emerald offers ongoing support to the research community with
its annual research fund award programme in 12 disciplines.
Emerald is a RoMEO Green publisher, and we keep accurate
records of copyright assignment in perpetuity.
Through a partnership with the EFMD, Emerald also runs the
annual Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards –
awarding ten cash prizes in ten research categories for the
improvement of management research.
Emerald is a founding signatory to the ground-breaking Zwolle
principles and follows the Publishers’ Licensing Society’s
Principles of Good Practice in Scholarly Journal Publishing.
8. Upholding editorial integrity
plagiarism and do not duplicate previously published work.
Our policy: “Editorial integrity” means that Emerald journals do
not take advertising, they are not influenced by private agendas,
pressure groups or political bodies. Emerald journal editors and
managing editors ensure that individual editorial objectives are
in line with Emerald’s publishing policy. Emerald is taking steps
to ensure that papers accepted for publication are free from
In September 2006, Emerald partnered with iParadigms,
developers of the Turnitin plagiarism detection product for
academic institutions and the iThenticate plagiarism detection
product for content publishers. This will help Emerald address
the problems of plagiarism and copyright infringement.
