Emerald Publishing awarded Independent Publisher of the Year and Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year at the IPG Independent Publishing Awards
23rd September 2020
Emerald Publishing is delighted and humbled to have won Independent Publisher of the Year and Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year at the 2020 Independent Publishers Guild, Independent Publishing Awards.
This is the second time the publisher has been awarded the title of Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year, something the company is incredibly honoured to have been recognised for.
Launched in 2007 and run by the Independent Publishers Guild (IPG), the Independent Publishing Awards are the UK's biggest annual celebration of independent publishing. The awards reward outstanding achievement in different sectors and aspects of publishing.
The judges recognised Emerald Publishing’s continuing commitment to its successful books and journals programme, together with its innovation of its content platform, Emerald Insight, and the expansion of its open research platform, Emerald Open Research, which tackles critical world issues linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The judges also appreciated the businesses strategies to reach non-core customers, recognising the publisher’s commitment to real world impact, diversity and supporting communities to overcome barriers to impact.
We always strive to put our customers at the heart of all we do and ask ourselves how we can go further to respond to their needs, especially in the changing landscape we are all facing.
Commenting on the publisher, the judges said “There’s a great energy about Emerald, and you get a really good sense of what they want to achieve and how. They are a company that could be resting on its successes and set in its ways, but instead is screaming innovation, creativity and vision.”
Tony Roche, Publishing and Strategic Relationships Director at Emerald, spoke of how humbled the company was to be recognised with the awards, saying, “We are incredibly honoured to have won the awards for Independent Publisher of the Year and Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year. We really appreciate the recognition our books programme and digital platform have received, especially given we are a relatively small, independent, yet progressively minded publisher. We always strive to put our customers at the heart of all we do and ask ourselves how we can go further to respond to their needs, especially in the changing landscape we are all facing. None of this of course would have been possible without the dedication and passion of the team at Emerald, and the contribution of the talented editors and authors we work with. Their inventive thinking continues to push us to do better and challenge ourselves to go further in helping impactful research get into the hands of those who matter and can change lives for the better”.
Emerald would like to congratulate all the nominees and winners in the 2020 Independent Publishing Awards, to thank the sponsors and IPG for their orchestration of today’s online celebratory event.
