First voices first

Opening up access to make voices heard

 

We’re really passionate here at Emerald about making research that matters as impactful as possible – that’s why we’ve started a new pilot project with The Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL).

Working alongside COPPUL and the University of Saskatchewan, we are providing research content access to a selection of Indigenous post-secondary institutions and communities. We believe in quality education for everyone, everywhere. By highlighting the issue and working with experts in the field we can start to find ways we can all be part of the solution.

How to access

 

We at UCN see this partnership with a great deal of anticipation and we really think the services it will offer to our students will be invaluable. We are grateful to COPPUL, the University of Saskatchewan, and Emerald Publishing for making this collaboration happen and for including us at UCN.

Free resources

Highlighted content

Our goal for this project is to get more relevant information and research resources into the hands of people who need it and beyond the walls of academia. If you are interested in continuing professional development opportunities, lifelong learning, and growing your business, give the Emerald Insight database a try.

Emerald Insight guidance

As an Indigenous librarian, I'm excited to see free access to Emerald database content open up to Indigenous communities and post-secondaries. It's one small step in the journey to correct historical wrongs related to research and Indigenous peoples and it warms my heart.

Deborah Lee, Indigenous Studies Collections and Initiatives librarian, University of Saskatchewan

As a publisher with strong commitment to provision of quality information and education for all, we’re excited to be supporting this pilot study with COPPUL. In particular, we’re interested in how this pilot can be extended beyond initial information access to participation through Indigenous scholarly authorship. Our belief is that all voices should be heard through the scholarly record, and it’s important that we don’t impose a one-size-fits-all approach to participation. We look forward to listening, learning, and ensuring we respond with appropriate products and services.
