A message from our Chief Executive Officer

COVID-19: we're here to help

We are living in a difficult and uncertain time around the world, as we face the spread of COVID-19. I’m writing to let you know what we’re doing at Emerald to keep our customers, colleagues and communities safe and supported as much as we can.

The physical and mental health and well-being of everyone is our top priority, as we aim to operate as normally as possible.

Although our physical offices may be closed for now, we are very much open. Now, more than ever, people need quick and easy online access to the information we publish on Emerald Insight and the opportunities to share their research. We are a digital-first, open publisher and will continue to be available for you throughout this public health crisis.

What we do

Emerald Publishing is one of the world's leading digital-first publishers, commissioning, curating and showcasing research that can make a real difference.

We're passionate about leading change, and align everything we do with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
