Video Abstracts Showcase – PAGE 4

Welcome to Emerald's Video Abstracts Showcase

Video abstracts showcaseVideo abstracts are an exciting new initiative which we are keen to explore with our communities.

Short videos presented by the originator of an article can provide an engaging platform for presenting a broad overview of the content and motivation behind a piece of work, add a personal touch to show the people involved, and in a world of "information overload" assist in signposting you to the research particularly relevant to your needs.

Below are video abstracts of recently published and notable Emerald articles filmed by the articles' authors. You will also find corresponding article and author information next to each abstract, along with the links to download the research.

We sincerely thank the authors featured below for making this showcase possible.
