Emerald believes that a right to read is a right to mine, and supports researchers’ rights to be able to text and data mine (TDM) 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 Emerald Insight This will allow us to enable you to complete your activity without technical obstacles and to maintain access for all Emerald users. 


Please see our Data Mining Policy for details.


If you have any questions about this policy, or wish to notify us of your planned TDM activity, please contact the Rights team.
