For research to have a real impact, it must be inclusive – shaped by diverse voices at every stage. We are committed to supporting diversity in the work we publish, in our workforce and in wider society.

To mark Pride Month, we've gathered together research from across our books, cases and journals, and made it free for you to read. Below, you’ll also find Pride perspectives from editors and authors, and hear how our staff are getting ready for our first ever Emerald Pride Week!

Make us the home for your research

"Make us the home for your research – together we can discover, innovate and put into practice what really matters."

If you have an idea for a journal special issue, a new book series, monograph or are interested in discussing other ways to disseminate your research, get in touch with our gender and diversity publisher Dr Helen Beddow.

Tracey Loughran reflects on #metoo and what it tells us about the importance of LGBTQ+ scholars, and others who do not fit the standard academic mould, making sure their voices are heard.

Pride in our staff

When everyone is included, we create Real Impact

We caught up with staff from across our business to find out why inclusion is important, how we can be a more inclusive workplace and talk about preparations for our first ever Emerald Pride Week! Watch our video to find out more.
