As the world’s leading international academic publisher, we pride ourselves on playing a creative role in society by disseminating teaching and research on a global scale. Publishing your article with SAGE means that you will benefit from:
- The highest production standards
All articles published in our journals are produced to the highest standards, paying close attention to rigorous peer review, high quality copyediting, typesetting, proof checking, printing and online publication on our award-winning platform. With some of the best-trained staff in the industry and our investment in online production workflow systems, SAGE track (our ScholarOne Manuscripts submission system) and OnlineFirst (our publishing ahead of print facility) we strive to attain excellent author service levels throughout the process. We are constantly looking for improvements in our production systems to make the author’s experience the very best it can be. We survey all of our authors on publication of their article and are responsive to any feedback.
- Online publication on the award-winning SAGE Journals Online platform
At SAGE, your article will be published on our award-winning platform hosted by the industry leader in online publication and e-publishing technology, HighWire Press (a division of Stanford University). Publication on SAGE Journals (SJ) means that your article will benefit from the very latest in online search and discoverability technology. With unparalleled search and reference-linking capability, a multitude of user features designed to maximize the author’s and reader’s experience and high-profile journal branding to enhance visibility, your article will be in the best possible position to be widely read and cited.
We are committed to ensuring that SJ remains at the cutting edge of online publishing. This is a continually evolving platform, developing through a rolling program of incremental updates, the implementation of new functionality, as well as major upgrades.
A review published in CHOICE (a magazine for librarians) in December 2010 recommended the all-new SJO as an “outstanding title!” and said:
“The retooling of SAGE's electronic platform clearly indicates that this publisher wants to serve as a leader in an increasingly competitive market. Summing Up: Recommended.”
- International sales and marketing
Our international sales and marketing activities are designed to maximise the global dissemination and visibility of the journals we publish. We use innovative online marketing and social media tools to promote the journals we publish and encourage usage and citations.
- SAGE and Open Access
SAGE was one of the first major publishers to embrace the Open Access business model and we now offer several options providing a wide range of choice for our authors and editors. Please see http://www.uk.sagepub.com/aboutus/openaccess.htm for more information.

Take advantage of our in-house PR department! We can work with you to create and disseminate press releases promoting your news-worthy article to the media. We also use various social media channels to ensure that your article reaches the widest possible audience. See the section on promoting your article for more information.
- Global dissemination and access in the developing world
We have sought and established partnerships with a growing number of important global initiatives to ensure that students, researchers and policy makers in the poorest nations have access to SAGE's latest leading peer-reviewed research in science, medicine and the social sciences.
