Each year Emerald Group Publishing awards certificates to highly cited papers relating to the areas of Business Management, Finance, Accounting, Economics and Marketing. The selection process made by Emerald's own editorial experts is based initially on the citations being given to papers published in a previous year (in this case 2014), but the judging panel also take into account the content of the papers themselves in terms of novelty, inter-disciplinary interest and relevancy in today’s world.
