The moment has come to announce the continuity of our partnership with Emerald Group Publishing Ltd. We are proud to say that this leading independent publisher of global research with impact in business, society, public policy and education is going to support Challenge:Future for the new Competition 2011/12.
Founded in 1967 as an offshoot of the University of Bradford, Emerald Group Publishing has become the world’s leading scholarly publisher of journals and books in business and management with a strong and growing presence in disciplines including social sciences, engineering, linguistics and audiology.
In total, Emerald publishes over 700 titles, comprising 200 journals, over 300 books and more than 200 book series as well as an extensive range of online products and services. Emerald Management Plus is the largest, most comprehensive collection of peer reviewed management journals and online support for students, managers and researchers. With "Research you can use” as a publishing philosophy, the collection provides scholarly research that is both rigorous and relevant, with practical implications for professionals outside the academic world. For busy managers in corporate, federal and public organizations, Emerald Management First is an award-winning online knowledge and information resource.
From the beginning, Emerald publications have sought to bridge the gap between the scholarly and practitioner world, always aiming to publish research which makes a significant contribution to practice. Emerald also addresses the issue of sustainability by having a long-term valuable impact on the social context of all its stakeholders and by effectively contributing to the protection of the environment.
With more than 40 years of existence, Emerald Group Publishing has achieved great results with all of the world's top 100 business schools (listed by the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings 2010) having Emerald authors or Editorial Board members. In 2009, more than 21 million articles were downloaded and read in research and studies which leads to an astonishing 50,000 a day, every day of the year.
Emerald has kindly offered to provide generous access to their management journals and resources to competing teams, to assist in competition judging process, and to contribute to Challenge:Future global visibility and positioning.
