Emerald and the CEEMAN are delighted to announce that the 26th CEEMAN/Emerald case writing competition is now open!

Submissions are made through ScholarOne Manuscripts, please see our author guidelines and details on how to submit.

In the spirit of a fully inclusive competition, global submissions are encouraged. The co-organisers will support global exposure of the submitted high-quality cases through a direct link with the Emerald Emerging Markets Case Studies collection (EMCS), a growing collection of over 690 case studies with teaching notes. All case submissions will be considered for international publication in EMCS.
