LU becomes a signatory of Emerald’s Real Impact Manifesto to drive research excellence with social impact

Lingnan University was invited to become a signatory of the Real Impact Manifesto, an initiative put forward by leading publisher Emerald Publishing, to drive research impact and, collectively, with other signatories and partners, aims to solve the challenges of social science research in a global context, and deliver sectoral change.    


All signatories will champion alternatives to traditional academic metrics and rewards, find new formats and channels to disseminate research to reach a wider audience, co-design services that help researchers and research managers develop healthy practice, highlight and reward examples of research that is driving real change, develop more equitable and accessible ways to publish research and build partnerships and networks, both informal and formal, which support researchers. 


By joining the initiative, LU has strengthened its networks and ties with the international research community so as to conduct research with impact, striving for the betterment of mankind in line of Lingnan’s “Impact with Care” value.
