Emerald Publishing celebrates 50th year of publishing
With offices worldwide, including New Delhi, Emerald Publishing is now celebrating 50 years of existence. With new announcements and collaborations, the publishing house is making 2017 a happening year. Founded in 1967 to champion new ideas that would advance the research and practice of business and management, Emerald Publishing is continuing to nurture fresh thinking in applied fields where they feel they can make a real difference, now also including health and social care, education, engineering and sociology.
Emerald Publishing has grown significantly in 50 years and now manages a portfolio of over 300 journals, over 3,000 books and book series volumes, over 1500 teaching cases as well as providing an extensive range of online products and additional customer resources and services. Their ever expanding books programme continues to have impact and relevancy for students, researchers, practitioners, businesses, government departments and institutions worldwide.
Caitlin Cornish, head of books publishing at Emerald, said, “2017 is a really exciting year for Emerald, with it celebrating its 50th year and rebranding in line with its goal of nurturing fresh thinking and publishing impactful research that resonates in the real world.”
Emerald Publishing is part of Emerald Group with offices worldwide, including New Delhi. Emerald puts research and their communities at the centre of their business and is a member of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) which actively supports research and education worldwide with a number of awards and research grants including Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards and Research Fund Awards.
In addition to continuing to publish high quality, academic monographs, handbooks and professional texts, Emerald is extremely proud to be launching a number of new series and products including –
- SocietyNOW – short, informed books, explaining why our world is the way it is, covering topics such as Donald Trump, Brexit, Big Data, Fracking, Drones, Celebrity Culture and Terrorism;
- Great Debates in Higher Education – accessible research covering the issues facing higher education institutions nationally and globally;
- A new short form product, Emerald Points which allows research to be published free from old-fashioned word length restrictions.
Alongside new volumes in its top-selling books series, Emerald also has a number of exceptional titles newly published or forthcoming, including Investment Traps Exposed by H Kent Baker; Putting the Genie Back by David Hone (chief climate change advisor for Shell); The Imagination Gap by Brian Reich; You’re Hired by Cheryl Joseph; Autonomous Driving by Rupert Stadler (chairman of the Board of Management, Audi AG), Walter Brenner and Andreas Hermann; Teaching Excellence in Higher Education by Amanda French and Matt O’Leary and Women vs. Feminism by Joanna Williams.
These exciting developments are the first fruits of the significant investment Emerald has been making in its books programme, which has seen Emerald create a new books division led by industry big-hitters and the launch of over 220 new titles across Business, Finance, Economics and the Social Sciences.
“The exciting new research we have commissioned – on subjects ranging from the Trump phenomenon to pressing environmental issues and the state of the world in general – is supported by highly accessible new book publishing formats that help bridge the gap between academia and the real world,” concluded Cornish.
