Emerald Publishing Services enables independent journals to reach a global audience with the help of Emerald's 50 years publishing expertise
Bingley, United Kingdom, 20 March 2017 – Since the launch of Emerald Publishing Services (EPS) – a third party publishing programme for research dissemination – two years ago, 16 agreements have been signed with a range of universities and associations worldwide, comprising a combination of new journal launches and acquisitions.
Through a variety of services which include electronic production, editorial consultancy and bespoke marketing campaigns, EPS converts peer-reviewed papers into professional publications both in print and online.
Journals published via EPS are hosted as open access on emeraldinsight.com, enhancing the discoverability, impact and value of the research through the use of enriched metadata and search engine optimization.
Tony Roche, Publishing Director at Emerald, comments: "It is a great privilege to work with so many global organizations via EPS, providing them with 50 years of publishing experience to help them achieve the maximum exposure and global reach their research deserves, both within the academic and professional environments.
"We look forward to enhancing our journal offering and securing new partnerships throughout the rest of 2017 and beyond."
New journal launches for 2017 include PSU Research Review: An International Journal and the International Journal of Crowd Science, strengthening Emerald’s existing subject collection of education; engineering; innovation; economics; logistics and social care.
Professor Ian Yeoman, Editor of the Journal of Tourism Futures said: "When you are starting a new journal, you need a great publisher. That’s what Emerald is. Without Emerald, the Journal of Tourism Futures wouldn’t exist".
The 16 existing partnerships include a mix of universities and associations based in North America, China, the Netherlands, Peru, Taiwan, Turkey, South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the Republic of Ireland, with more anticipated throughout 2017.
