Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has launched a publishing fund of £20,000 to cover the article publishing charges (APCs) for any research that relates to societal impacts as a result of the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and similar health emergencies.
As the Covid-19 outbreak continues to spread, Emerald Publishing seeks to help researchers disseminate timely and relevant findings which will benefit the society as a whole. The company has strived to help researchers in related topics to make their research freely accessible across the globe using Emerald Open Research an innovative open access research platform which supports rapid publication, an open data policy and open peer review process.
Emerald Publishing has called all social scientists working in the following interdisciplinary research areas to get in touch as quickly as possible so they can help share their research findings: workplace management and planning; HR practices and employment procedures; Government policies and procedures, new technologies and innovations; healthcare systems, services and funding; mental health and wellbeing implications; education and learning accessibility; responsible leadership and management; hospitality and tourism; and economic implications and planning procedures.
Researchers can visit https://www.emeraldpublishing.com/coronavirus/ to find details on how to publish their related research and gain access to any information as it becomes live.
Emerald Publishing has brought together a number of research resources related to the Coronavirus group of viruses.
In a further move to support the global community, Emerald Publishing has joined the signatories on the Wellcome Trust's Statement, which is designed to ensure that research findings and data, relevant to the Covid-19 outbreak, are shared rapidly and openly to inform the public health response and help save lives.
