Online international management information publisher Emerald has reached an agreement with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) to supply content to the Unit's new Web-based Executive Briefing service. Under the partnership agreement, Executive Briefing will include selected articles from Emerald's widely acclaimed and award-winning management journals, which can be accessed by the service's subscribers. Other Emerald journal articles will form the basis of research papers written by EIU analysts. Executive Briefing is designed to provide executives with the global industry forecasts and analyses they need to make informed and timely business decisions. Building on the EIU forecasting model, the service provides five-year country-by-country forecasts for eight key industries, in-line with its macroeconomic forecasts.
