Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence 2016 winners announced

Emerald recognizes and rewards research excellence

Bingley, United Kingdom, 9 May 2016 - Emerald Group Publishing is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence.  Now in its 23rd year, this awards programme is one of the largest, independent award schemes run by a publishing company – recognizing and rewarding the outstanding contributions of the Emerald Literati Network to scholarly research.

This year, over 2,000 authors and reviewers have been rewarded for their high quality research and commitment to their academic field.  The judging criteria included 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.
Winning and highly commended authors have been selected by Emerald’s journal and book series’ editorial boards, who look for research which demonstrates rigour and relevance as well as contributing something new to their field.  Outstanding reviewers have also been acknowledged, as Emerald recognizes that their effort and dedication is paramount to publishing research that helps its communities make important decisions.

Tony Roche, Publishing Director at Emerald, said: “The Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence showcase the highest quality research published by Emerald and reward our authors and reviewers for their hard work and commitment to their research field.

“These awards not only recognize research rigour, but also provide our authors with the recognition they deserve to help them achieve more throughout their scholarly research journey.

“We are proud to be the advocate for this award programme and to help the global academic community achieve their research goals in many different subject areas.

“Congratulations go to all of our winners”.

Dr Awad Ibrahim, winner of an outstanding paper award for ‘Economic growth and cost stickiness: evidence from Egypt’, said: “Writing this paper took around a year of intensive work, data collection, analysis and modifications to produce the final piece.  To receive appreciation from others for my hard work is wonderful.

“As the author, I know how this paper contributes to this area and introduces something different from existing literature, and I would like to thank the editorial team of the Journal of Financial Reporting and Accounting for also recognizing that.

“As well as enhancing my CV, this award will help me towards my dream job as a professor of accounting in one of the world’s largest business schools, and encourage me to produce other high quality papers.  Thank you so much for this award.”

In order to celebrate the hard work undertaken by our authors and reviewers, all 580 winning research papers will be free to access until January 2017.  The 1,218 highly commended papers are free to access until the end of May 2016.
