Open Access at SAGE
News and Announcements
SAGE Open Access Initiatives
SAGE is the world’s largest independent academic publisher and is committed to global dissemination of research. We have published open access journals for a number of years with the goal of disseminating vital research to the broadest community. SAGE’s mission is founded in the belief that education is intrinsically valuable, and the dissemination of useable knowledge is a key foundation in building a healthy society.
In December 2010 we launched SAGE Open, the first open access journal spanning across the social and behavioural sciences and humanities, and subsequently launched SAGE Open Medicine and SAGE Open Medical Case Reports in 2012. 2014 saw the launch of Big Data & Society, Research and Politics and many more titles.
SAGE’s Open Access Publishing Modes
SAGE supports both gold open access publication and green open access archiving:
- SAGE Choice is offered on all SAGE’s traditional subscription journals and allows authors to make their published article freely available for article processing charge
- SAGE pure gold open access journals
- SAGE also supports green open access archiving for authors publishing in traditional subscription journals
