The quantity of material being published grows exponentially each year. Information overload is a challenge facing every serious researcher and practitioner. Emerald Management Reviews provides comprehensive access to the world's best literature in management. But to be comprehensive, Emerald Management Reviews is first selective.
Much of the added value users derive from Emerald Management Reviews comes from the knowledge that only periodicals of the highest order are included in the database so time will not be wasted searching for and reading inappropriate material. That said, the decision to include a title within the database is a positive one – journals are actively selected as follows:
Each year the Emerald Management Reviews accreditation board undertakes a total review of coverage. Within 12 months new titles will have emerged, existing journals will have changed editorial direction, and some journals will have ceased publication. Some will no longer make the grade. Others will have improved during the period since the last review. Each accreditation board member takes special responsibility for his or her area of expertise.
In reaching their decision, accreditation board members have been informed by the library holdings of leading centres of excellence around the world (such as Harvard University, MIT and Stanford University), customer recommendations and feedback on journal performance. The Emerald Management Reviews accredited journal list represents the world's best serials across all aspects of management.
The Accredited Journal Badge for Emerald Management Reviews is awarded annually to publications selected for inclusion on the accredited journal list. For researchers and practitioners, the Emerald Management Reviews Accredited Journal Badge represents a seal of quality, indicating that a periodical is one of the top 300 management publications in the world.
In agreement with us, accredited publishers are permitted to use this badge on their journal homepages, within their journals and on promotional literature.
