Emerald Management Reviews is a vast database of 300,000+ article abstracts from the top 300 management publications worldwide, as selected by an independent accreditation board of industry experts. Publications on the prestigious Emerald Management Reviews Coverage List include, for example, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Finance, and Strategic Management Journal.
