Real Impact Showcase

3 Real Impact For over 50 years research impact has been at the heart of Emerald’s business. Our core ethos is about making a difference through research, and our proud heritage has always focused on supporting the communication of research for the wider benefit of policy and practice. With a sector increasingly dominated by pressure and expectation, we recognise the challenges faced in connecting research to impact. That’s why we want to help researchers tell their story in a meaningful way. In 2018, we introduced the Real Impact Awards to celebrate and recognise commitment to positive change in the real world. From a shortlist of award submissions, we are delighted to present to you the Real Impact Showcase Book which tells the stories of all our inspirational award winners and highly commended entries. w: e:
