Emerald Points

A short-form book programme publishing new research, helping to set the agenda for future research

Emerald Points allow for a fast response to current affairs and contemporary issues, and can also include think-pieces or polemics, policy-focused research or findings with relevance for practitioners, in-depth case studies, theoretical or analytical work.

We welcome single-authored projects or proposals for edited collections, and actively welcome submissions from Early Career Researchers. This new format allows authors the ability to publish your research free from artificial length restrictions.

Features include:

  • Fast track publication – 12 weeks from submission of your manuscript and peer review, through to publication of your book.
  • Relevance – allows you to publish your research quickly, so it remains relevant and has an immediate impact.
  • Accessibility – all Emerald Points are available in print and e-book format. Open Access options are also available.
  • Impact – format, fast publication, and accessibility, all enable your work to have a wider impact.
  • Peer review – all books in the Emerald Points programme are rigorously peer reviewed.
  • Global marketing platform – Your title will be marketed, sold and distributed by a truly global and independent publisher.

Emerald Points are between 20,000-50,000 words in length. Emerald ensures expert editorial guidance and high quality production standards and proactive marketing support and promotion.
