We are passionate about inspiring and supporting the evolving research needs of our communities in the US and Canada. And we are committed to supporting all manner of activities aimed at helping research have impact both in this part of the world and globally.
Whether it be aligning our research outputs to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, or championing researchers and practitioners from all communities with timely and innovative dissemination pathways, Emerald North America is all about ideas, connections, and community building. We take everyone’s voice seriously, and we’d love to hear from you.
Erika Valenti, Regional Manager
Introduction to the team
We believe our role is to help challenge conventional ways of thinking, bringing people together in order to discover, curate, and put into practice what really matters.
At our core we also believe that a diverse and inclusive scholarly community, across our stakeholders is one area we can take a stand on. What we publish, who we publish and who we support – is a company value that we believe can make a real impact in North America. That means regardless of race, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age, income, or anything else – individuals deserve and should demand to be equally represented and heard.
We are proud to be part of such a dynamic and independent company. Emerald Publishing is on a journey – we hope you will join us in making a difference.
We’ve aligned our research to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and support both researchers and practitioners with timely and innovative dissemination pathways.
Emerald North America is all about ideas, connections and community building.
Setting the playlist podcast series
Diversity is being asked to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance, equity is setting the playlist. This series focuses on gender equity and how women are setting the playlist. Hosted by Emerald North America Regional Manager, Erika Valenti.
We’ve partnered with The Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL) on a new pilot project, First voices first. Working alongside COPPUL and the University of Saskatchewan, we are providing free research content access to a selection of Indigenous post-secondary institutions and communities.
We also partner with many US associations and industry groups including the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of the American Library Association, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Library Alliance. And with the Center for Innovation in Behavioral Health Education & Research (CIBER).
'I have found publishing with Emerald to be an extremely positive experience, ‘hands on’ and supportive comes to mind. Additionally, Emerald brought several opportunities to my attention. Exemplar was a diversity blog following on from their recently published global diversity report, showing that they are eager to contribute to much needed international debate in the inequality arena. In this regard I find Emerald put words into action in a way others do not.'
'The Emerald Publishing team is top notch! Their level of dedication and ongoing support is impressive. They importantly helped our book have a meaningful impact both inside the classroom and out in the profession. When it came time to send out proposals for our next book project, Emerald was at the top of the list. Work with them. You’ll be glad you did.'
