Introducing three new collections created with Emerald Publishing
Together with Emerald Publishing, we have created three new collections of Emerald publications that support Emerald’s three missions of promoting responsible consumption, equal access to digital technology, and reduced inequality throughout the world. These missions, inspired by the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), align closely with Emerald’s content and the interdisciplinary research being carried out by their subject communities. As a global business, Emerald recognizes that issues around inequality, sustainability and the digital divide resonate with audiences around the world and not just within academia, which was a driving factor for creating these collections.
