Emerald is a leading international publisher of LIS and management journals and in 1996 the company was one of the first academic and professional management publishers to digitize its entire journals collection. These awards recognize the efforts of authors and editors and celebrate the outstanding contributions many have made, not only to Emerald’s journals, but to the body of knowledge itself.

The Emerald Literati Network is a global leader in publishing research. Every year, the Emerald Literati Network invites their affiliated journal’s editorial team to nominate outstanding papers and highly commended papers. The award-winning papers are chosen by the journal’s editorial team, many of whom are eminent academics or managers.  More information about the Emerald Literati Network is located at http://info.emeraldinsight.com/authors/literati/index.htm .
