Emerald Publishing launches an initiative for Open Access – Emerald Reach – a program designed to deliver rigorous high-quality open access content and increase the contents visibility. With this launch, Emerald drops all embargoes on articles. This means authors are allowed parallel publish (also known as post-print publishing or self-archiving) their article, for example in DiVA, free of charge (so-called Green Open Access).
Effective from 27 September 2017, Emerald has removed embargoes across all journals, providing authors with the option to make their accepted manuscript openly available, free from payment and embargo periods.
