EarlyCite & accepted articles

If you receive the good news that your article has been accepted, we always make sure it is available on Emerald Insight well ahead of the publication date of the volume and issue it appears in. This ensures your work can start gathering citations and downloads as soon as possible.

We offer EarlyCite across all our journals which means that immediately upon acceptance your article will enter our production process and be:

  • Typeset
  • Proofed
  • Published online as a Version of Record
  • Available for citing and downloading

EarlyCite articles are published as standalone articles and then later collated into issues in advance of print publication. At this point, the articles move to the table of contents for the compiled issue and are assigned pagination information. The DOI provides a persistent identifier throughout.
