Quick links



Emerald Publishing have carefully curated four themed collections of research, each aligned to a key mission supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs).


So, what are ‘missions’? According to the European Commission:


  • They should be bold and have societal value.
  • They should have concrete targets — so you know when you get there.
  • They should involve research and innovation with technological readiness over limited time frame (i.e. realistic and achievable).
  • They should foster cross-sectoral, cross-actor, and cross-disciplinary collaborations.
  • They should allow multiple, competing solutions.

Emerald’s four missions are:


  1. Fairer Society
  2. Healthier Lives
  3. Quality Education for All
  4. Responsible Management 


As a global business Emerald Publishing recognises that issues around responsible management, quality education, healthier lives and delivering a fairer society for all resonate with audiences around the world, reaching beyond academia. Bringing together the very best research in these areas makes it easier for academics, businesses, policy makers and others to discover, helping to contribute to real change in society.

Emerald’s mission collections are updated regularly so there will always be new research to explore.
