United Kingdom, April 2011 – Emerald Group Publishing is delighted to announce the launch of Reading ListAssist, an innovative service that brings together journal articles and book chapters from a range of disciplines in one comprehensive reading list package. This unique service was conceived as a workflow aid for educators, students and researchers, and is freely available to all subscribers.
Each reading list is assembled by subject experts to guarantee their quality and reliability, and can readily be used by lecturers in the classroom. It provides students with a high-quality research tool, helping to build information literacy and research skills.
Nick Lee, Professor of Marketing and Organisational Research at Aston Business School, UK, and editor of European Journal of Marketing, commented: "This is an excellent initiative, and should help both authors to reach the maximum possible audience, influencing the impact of their work, and researchers and students to widen their coverage of key areas of interest by using the available literature to its fullest extent."
Rebecca Marsh, Publishing Director at Emerald, also commented: “Reading ListAssist is a workflow aid that is quick and easy to use. As the reading lists are specific to a particular subject but draw from a very wide range of knowledge, they provide both relevant and inter-disciplinary research from very different and not always the most obvious publications. This provides lecturers and students with an accurate picture of research in a wider context.”
Currently containing 50 reading lists, each accompanied by a subject expert’s editorial, and covering 19 subject collections, Reading ListAssist is both a research and education tool. Emerald is offering this unique peer-reviewed reading list service free to all subscribers – helping librarians, faculty and students to make the most of their subscription.
Reading ListAssist will be launched at UKSG 34th Annual Conference and Exhibition 2011 in Harrogate, UK, from 4-6 April. Visit stands 48 and 49 to find out more.
