New publishing fund to help researchers rapidly share their findings related to COVID-19

27th March 2020

Due to high demand the (COVID-19) publishing fund has now been allocated. We’re still accepting submissions related to the outbreak and similar healthcare emergencies subject to the payment of an APC.

You can find out more about the collection and submitting your work on our Emerald open research platform.

Calling all social scientists! We’re funding the article processing charges (APCs) on research related to the societal impact of coronavirus.

We have launched a publishing fund of £20,000 to cover the APCs for research published on Emerald Open Research.

As the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak continues to spread, we want to help you disseminate timely and relevant findings that will benefit all of society. As well as the need for medical and hard sciences, social sciences research is vital to the prevention, management and understanding of the wider societal impact of COVID 19.

Research themes

We are calling all social scientists working in the following interdisciplinary research areas to get in touch as quickly as possible so we can help share your research findings:

  • Workplace management and planning
  • HR practices and employment procedures
  • Government policies and procedures
  • New technologies and innovations
  • Health care systems, services and funding
  • Mental health and wellbeing implications
  • Education and learning accessibility
  • Responsible leadership and management
  • Hospitality and tourism
  • Economic implications and planning procedures
  • Supply chain management

What is required?

  • Your research should be related to the prevention, management and impact of a public healthcare outbreak. Please see the research themes for guidance on areas for publication.
  • All submitted research must meet our editorial policies and author guidelines.
  • The platform supports an open data policy. All articles should include the submission of data underlying the results. More details on the open data policy can be found on the website. 
  • All content will be openly peer reviewed post publication.
