For over 25 years the Emerald Literati Awards, which have included the Awards for Excellence and Citations of Excellence, celebrate and reward the outstanding contributions of authors and reviewers to scholarly research.

The criteria used to judge the awards are based on six areas that inform the development of our products: internationality; diversity; support for scholarly research; encouragement of applied research (impact); commitment to high quality scholarship; and a desire to ensure reader, author and customer experience is the best it can be.
