As I continue preparations to move to the United States this fall, I was gratified to receive notification from Jim Bowden, Academic Relations Manager at Emerald Publishing, letting me know that my paper, “Holding banks to account for the financial crisis?” — previously published in the Journal of Financial Crime — has been selected by the journal’s editorial team as the Outstanding Paper in the 2017 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence.
The web page of all winners is now live: www.emeraldpublishing.com/authors/literati/awards.htm?year=2017
Emerald representatives will be presenting the awards at a number of conferences over the summer, primarily in Europe, but also in Atlanta, Arlington, San Diego and Boston this fall.
Emerald is committed to supporting and celebrating the work of its author community and we will be issuing a press release regarding these awards at the beginning of May. This will be posted on emeraldpublishing.com and celebratory social media posts will also be issued on Emerald social media platforms.
Meanwhile, I continue to make progress on selling property and transitioning to fulltime life in the Washington, DC area.
Wishing you a wonderful summer,
Dr. Oonagh McDonald, CBE
