Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has signed its first transformative deal with the IReL consortium.
This progressive deal will run from 2021 to 2023, and it will seek to enhance the publishing journey for researchers from all of IReL’s participating higher education institutions in Ireland, giving them access to all Emerald Journal content.
Building on Emerald’s goal of reducing the participation and access barriers to publishing open, the agreement includes publishing vouchers which can be used in all Emerald journals, Gold OA journals and Emerald Open Research; the open peer review platform that supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Emerald Publishing was recently recognised for their innovation, creativity and vision when they were awarded Independent Publisher of the Year and Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year by the Independent Publishers Guild.
IReL is a nationally funded e-resource licensing consortium providing access to leading online resources on behalf of participating Irish publicly funded higher education institutions.
