Emerald and IFLA begin a special partnership

United Kingdom, April 2010 - Emerald Group Publishing Limited, the world's
leading publisher of management and library research, and the
International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA),
are delighted to announce that they have formalised their relationship by
signing a partnership agreement.

The 'special partnership' was first announced at the IFLA World Library
and Information Congress in Milan, August 2009, as well as at the evening
Regional Activities social event at the same conference.  This was
cemented with the signing of a formal agreement between the two
organisations, which will provide the IFLA community with substantially
more publishing opportunities.  The opportunity to be published by Emerald
will be available, not only for research produced by the various IFLA
Sections, but for papers presented at the general IFLA Congress and
satellite events.  Emerald articles arising as a result of IFLA activities
will be made available in open access, nine months after publication with

Rebecca Marsh, Editorial Director at Emerald, comments, "Emerald journals
are currently available in more than 3,000 institutions around the world,
providing an excellent opportunity for authors to disseminate their work
in many of the world's top research institutions.  Having worked with IFLA
for a number of years, the activities that have developed are varied and
altogether show the broad and serious interest of Emerald in IFLA's work.
We look forward to developing this relationship further."

The good relationship between Emerald and IFLA started during the IFLA/UAP
Office at the British Library Document Supply Centre in the 1970s, and
Emerald has been an IFLA Gold Corporate Partner since 1998.  During this
period of more than a decade, Emerald has strengthened its involvement in
IFLA's activities, which culminated in the continuing sponsorship of the
IFLA International Marketing Award run by IFLA's Management and Marketing
Section, as well as Emerald's continuing support of IFLA library
initiatives and activities in Africa.
