Share this on social media:

Emerald Group Publishing, has joined the Access to Research initiative, a two-year pilot scheme to make over 1.5 million academic articles freely accessible to the British public. Through the scheme, Emerald is making a number of its business and management, library and information science  journals freely available to participating libraries.

Tony Roche, publishing director at Emerald, said: 'Access to Research is the result of a successful collaboration between publishers, librarians and the search delivery solution provider, ProQuest. For Emerald, joining the initiative supports our vision to increase the value and impact of research by connecting people with quality content. We are delighted to be involved with this service and look forward to analysing usage over the trial period, to further enhance the initiative and Emerald's programme accordingly.'

To date, 17 publishers are involved in this scheme.
