emerald_logo_newThere will be a period of downtime on the Emerald Insight platform.  This affects e-books and e-journals.

The maintenance is scheduled to take place on Saturday 25 October 2014, between 12am and 3am.  During this maintenance window, Emerald Insight will be unavailable for up to 1 hour.  If you access the website during this time you will receive a ‘connection timeout’, or similar message, within your browser.


Emerald Insight – platform upgrade


Emerald Insight have completed their platform upgrade work this week. Prompted by customer feedback, this has resulted in:

  • Increased discoverability – thanks to enriched metadata and search engine optimization
  • Improved usability – due to simplification of the administration area and alignment with other academic publisher platforms
  • Enhanced search – as a result of advanced filter capabilities
  • Industry standard categorization – because of redefined subject taxonomies
  • Heightened security – owing to the implementation of latest access and security protocols
  • Plus an extended range of author and editor services, including downloads of published research and access to historic publication events such as citations in other publications

We have access to over 190 e-journals on the Emerald Insight platform, the titles are listed in our e-journal A-Z list and in the library catalogue.
