ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers, and Emerald Publishing, one of the world's leading digital-first publishers, today announced a new partnership to add 18 Emerald journals to ResearchGate – making these journals seamlessly discoverable and accessible by ResearchGate's millions of members globally.

Emerald's publishing portfolio encompasses a broad range of applied and mission-driven research across fields including social sciences, economics, management, education, health social care, and engineering. The new partnership will see the pilot Emerald journals benefit from ResearchGate's innovative Journal Home offering. This will provide enhanced journal visibility through dedicated journal profiles, each journal being prominently represented on all associated article pages and other relevant touch points on the platform that are accessed regularly by ResearchGate's 25 million members, including nearly 7 million users in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

All version-of-record articles from these titles will be available via ResearchGate on publication, as well as backfile access, giving entitled readers effortless access to subscription content and increasing the reach of open access content to all members.

"Emerald are committed to providing a leading service for authors," said Tony Roche, Chief Officer, Publishing & Strategic Relationships at Emerald Publishing. "We are pleased to start this partnership which offers an innovative way to extend engagement with our authors' research, taking it to new audiences through ResearchGate, and we look forward to measuring the benefits to our communities."

"Emerald's commitment to a researcher-centric strategy is something we also share at ResearchGate, which is why we're so pleased to be embarking on this partnership" said Sören Hofmayer, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at ResearchGate. "The ResearchGate ecosystem and Journal Home service offer a unique way of increasing journal visibility with researchers where they are actively reading and connecting, enabling authors to grow engagement with their work in a trusted environment."
