We are committed and passionate about what we do here in East Asia – supporting and equipping decision makers, championing fresh thinking, and basically helping people make smarter choices in their everyday life. We innovate and try to put practice into what really matters, supporting all regional activities along the line of that principal understanding. We want to move beyond just dissemination, by building rapport with the relevant community to engage with the wider world to make a difference!
Our East Asia team’s purpose is to provide high quality services and scholarly content that’s responsive to the needs of the research community through team empowerment and collaboration.
‘We believe everyone can make a Real Impact, so it’s our goal to empower people to do just that!’

Reaching beyond Kuala Lumpur
Although our East Asia office is located in Malaysia, we are a skilled team speaking over nine languages across seven countries – Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan, Brunei and Korea as which make up our varied and interesting region. We are always active in the countries we serve and travel often around our uniquely diverse geography, each area with its own hot topics for research dissemination. Our team attend conferences and visit customers from Japan to the Philippines and every country in between.
What we love about our local area
When at the Malaysia office, it is hard not to enjoy all the types of food Malaysia has to offer. Malaysian cuisine consists of cooking traditions and practices, this reflects the multi-ethnic makeup of its population. Across our team we have a wide range of diverse cultures, with the vast majority of Malaysia’s population roughly being divided among three major ethnic groups: Malay, Chinese and Indians – we’re always constantly learning!
Our relationship with the community
As an organisation, Emerald is committed to expanding its operations globally in a sustainable manner for the benefit of its customers, its employees, and the wider communities and environment on which it impacts. As part of the social responsibility work we do in our region, we engage with our local communities by taking part in My Reading programme to help underprivileged children learn English, river clean-ups, replanting programmes, blood donation and provide our support to trafficked survivor protection shelters along with many more. CSR activities helps us forge a stronger bond between each other, and we feel more connected with the world around us.
