Emerald publishes 140 journals in management and related areas, and a further 15 in engineering and materials science, making it the largest scholarly publisher in this field in the world. The Emerald FullText database is an online library of Emerald’s business and management journals, archived back to 1994, with more than 50,000 papers in total. More than 1,500 of the world’s business schools and university management departments, including the majority of the FT Top 100 Business Schools, subscribe to the Emerald FullText database.

Emerald also publish the ManagementFirst.com web portal, established in 2000, and the Emerald Literati Network of scholars and managers, established 1992, described as “the largest expert network in the world”; and is a significant investor in the Virtual College, an innovative and fast-growing online learning and technology provider.

Emerald employs nearly 160 people in its home city of Bradford, England, in the UK, and is the most significant employer in, and an active community contributor to, an ethnically diverse and regenerating local district. Emerald have representative offices in the US, China, Malaysia, Australia and Japan, and a worldwide subscriber, author and editor base, with less than 20% of our revenues deriving from our home markets.

Emerald has worked closely with the EFMD in recent years and in 2004 launched the annual Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards in business and management. These give cash awards to recent graduates from Doctoral programs in business and management, as selected by an international scholarly panel of judges.

Emerald Group Publishing is pleased to be supporting the important work of EFMD and AACSB in creating the GFME, and the GFME Global Guide to Management Education.
