Using Social Media
The phenomenal rise over the last five years of online social media has profoundly affected journal publishing, as users place a premium on active engagement with the scholarly community.
Journal content is not limited to text — it now includes videos, podcasts, images, datasets, photographs and maps. Multimedia content aids discoverability of your research and allows users to engage with your publication – it allows for a two-way conversation rather than one-way communication. Users are increasingly searching across all types of content for answers to their research.
We have launched the following initiatives and will continue to build on these. Should you have ideas and suggestions you want to explore with social media please let us know! A list of suggestions is included here:
SAGE Publications channel on YouTube – hosts videos of interviews, lectures and discussions with SAGE authors, editors and societies
SAGE Publications page on Slideshare – hosts SAGE product presentations and sample content
SAGE Publications channel on Flickr – hosts photos from SAGE conferences and events
SAGE Connection – our blog to keep our authors, editors and society partners up-to-date with both industry and SAGE news
SAGE Press Room – press releases available in HTML and via an RSS feed
For ideas on how you can use social media tools to help promote your article, please read our guide on Using Social Media to Promote Your Article.
The SAGE Insight blog puts the spotlight on research published in SAGE journals. Both new and from our archives, the articles featured on SAGE Insight provide a fresh perspective on major issues facing the public and policy makers. We cover everything from crime to medical practices, from psychology to education. As a SAGE journal author you can suggest your article for inclusion in SAGE Insight.

SAGE Article Press Release Program
A SAGE Article Press Release program is available on a case-by-case basis to raise the visibility of particular articles, and highlight new and important research. We are interested in hearing from you if you think your paper may be of interest to the media. If deemed newsworthy, SAGE will assign expert press release writers with experience and knowledge of what catches the media’s attention to create items for dissemination to the media.
A newsworthy paper should:
- Present new research, or add new information to previous research
- Appeal to a general as well as a specialist audience
- Have a message that can be explained in lay terms
- Reflect well on the research field, and the journal
Please get in touch with the journal editor if you think your paper may be newsworthy.
