United Kingdom, 13 December 2011 – Emerald Group Publishing, a leading publisher of global research, has announced the launch of the Emerald app. Providing access to almost 100,000 articles from Emerald journals, the Emerald App also allows users to synch their personal profiles for seamless research workflow and share results through social media for increased dissemination and impact. It is available now for free download from the Apple app store: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/emerald/id479491823?mt=8
The intuitive interface of the Emerald App focuses on search and browse functions to enable research on-the-go. Subscribers can log into their personal profile to create reading lists, add articles to existing lists and share results with peers via the built-in social networking facilities, such as Twitter and Facebook. Full text is available for subscribed content in an easy-to-read PDF format.
Daniel Prendergast, Head of Digital at Emerald, comments: “This App is the latest in a series of developments, the aims of which are to improve ways of delivering access to research, build stronger communities around our subject areas, disseminate research and increase its impact.”
The Emerald App is optimized for iPad and compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. It requires iOS 3.0 or later.
Emerald is committed to improving ways of delivering access to research, and works with a range of partners to ensure compliance, discoverability and visibility.
