Partner with Emerald to launch a new journal

We welcome opportunities to combine our publishing expertise with the subject specialities of other organisations to launch quality, sustainable journals.

If you represent a member organisation and are interested in introducing a new title with us, we would love to hear from you.

Join a winning team

A third of societies regularly incur losses via co-publishing arrangements, but we do not ask for investment from our partner associations, societies and organisations. With an Emerald partnership, you gain a journal published in your name without the financial outlay and shared risk that traditional ‘society publishers’ usually require.

The only service we charge for is the supply of the new journal to your members, but we can provide this at a fraction of the cost of a full subscription. There is no obligation to use this service, but we know from other organisations it has proved a valuable and tangible benefit of membership and a vital means of encouraging member retention and engagement. It can also help to attract new applications.

Supporting and promoting your organisation

Our partners have the power to appoint their own editors and editorial advisory board members, and to work with Emerald to determine the scope and objectives of the journal.

We recognise that your executive and its members have the expertise to help ensure that a new launch will be successful. It is this expertise, combined with the publishing knowledge and experience we provide, that can sustain a new journal during those vulnerable early years.

We pride ourselves on our awareness that every partner has different needs and priorities. Our rigorous new launch process means that we will only launch a new title when we are convinced there is a need and that the journal can be developed into a quality publication that is sustainable, of interest to the research and practitioner community, and a fitting addition to the Emerald portfolio.
