Emerald text and data mining policy
Emerald believes that a right to read is a right to mine, and supports researchers’ rights to be able to text and data mine content that they have legal access to.
Authorised users at subscribing institutions have our permission to mine journal content they have legal access to for non-commercial purposes, subject to the terms of our subscription agreements. The outputs of any TDM activities should bear the appropriate attribution of the original Emerald content where possible.
To allow Emerald to manage server capacity, we would ask that you notify us before conducting any TDM activities on www.emerald.com/insight. This will allow us to enable you to complete your activity without technical obstacles and to maintain access for all Emerald users.
If you have any questions about this policy, or wish to notify us of your planned TDM activity, please contact us at email@example.com
As a publisher in scholarly research, higher education and professional development, we recognise the roles of both librarian and publisher as custodian of scholarly content, and are committed to the preservation of the scholarship in its research for generations to come.
With this in mind, our journal and e-book content is continually archived and preserved in the following schemes:
These schemes allow libraries to activate perpetual access rights when needed and offer assurance to libraries and publishers that their shared investments are protected and preserved for the future.
We are a global publisher linking research and practice to the benefit of society. We procure goods and services from suppliers across the world.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships. This includes ensuring that there is no slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory human labour, abuse of power over vulnerable individuals, human trafficking or any other form of exploitation in any part of our business or in our supply chain.
We expect our suppliers to have a willingness to share our values. This code of conduct has been created to set out the values and principles that underpin all of our work. It is applicable to all of our suppliers and sets out the standards that we expect them to comply with.
As a minimum, we expect our suppliers to meet the following requirements:
- Compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
- Paying fair wages in line with the norms for the industry and market and not requiring anyone to work excessive hours, particularly where this might impact personal health and safety.
- Treating those who work for or on behalf of the business with dignity and respect, promoting a safe environment free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
- Opposing illegal or inhumane labour practices, including the use of forced or child labour, modern slavery or human trafficking.
- Maintaining an ethical concerns policy (procedures that staff may adopt in the event they suspect an instance of unethical behaviour, including slavery and human trafficking).
- Monitoring supply chains for compliance with the above requirements.
By contracting with us, our suppliers agree to adhere to this code of conduct. As part of our commitment to act ethically and with integrity, we ask our suppliers to demonstrate that they work in the ways required by this code of conduct from time to time.
