Open access week
We believe that open research has the potential to accelerate real world change. The pandemic reinforced this and allowed us to see first hand that the sharing of research and supporting data can help to solve global challenges and create real impact.
We’re committed to supporting the community in the evolution to an ecosystem that is not only open but also equitable to advance in areas that are in most need.
Open access week gives us an opportunity to bring together members of our communities to discuss, educate and take action to support open publishing around the globe.

Openness and transparency
Every year we gather the views of our communities through our global academic culture survey and in 2021, more than 2,000 academics, librarian and students within Emerald’s Literati community participated.
The topics covered were around attitudes to research evaluation, cultural challenges within academia, openness and transparency, the widening inequalities within academia, and the evolving role of the publisher.
