Important information regarding Swets

Please find below important information concerning Swets & Zeitlinger Group B.V (Swets), a subscription agent a number of institutions use to process orders and payments for Emerald research as well as other publishers.

On Friday 19 September 2014, an Amsterdam court granted Swets a ‘provisional suspension of payments’.  As a result, it is possible that some orders and payments placed via Swets have not been processed and passed to Emerald. Please note that until these are received in full, Emerald is regretfully unable to complete your subscription request.

Considering Swets’ current legal situation, the International Association of STM Publishers and Emerald advise you to check the status of any recent orders with Swets and assess the on-going use of Swets as a subscription agent until any legal procedures are closed. If you would like to place orders directly with Emerald, please contact

To ensure that the relevant contacts at your institution are aware of the situation, we advise you to share this email with your colleagues in finance and purchasing and seek legal advice regarding any queries concerning your rights.

We appreciate the inconvenience that this may cause and will aim to provide further information when available.
