SAGE EXPANDS OPEN ACCESS PUBLISHING PORTFOLIO INTO ENGINEERING AND MEDICINE

A further three broad-spectrum open access journals to launch: - SAGE Open Medicine, SAGE Open Medical Case Reports and SAGE Open Engineering.

Los Angeles, CA (June 15, 2012) – SAGE today announced they are launching a further three broad-spectrum open access journals - SAGE Open Medicine, SAGE Open Medical Case Reports and SAGE Open Engineering.

The new journals build on the success of SAGE Open: the only broad-spectrum open access journal for the humanities and social sciences. Launched in March 2011, the journal has received more than 1000 submissions in its first year of publication

All three new titles complement SAGE's rapidly expanding portfolio in engineering and medicine, providing an even wider choice of publication opportunities for authors:

  • SAGE Open Engineering will be the first broad-spectrum journal dedicated to the field, focusing on all aspects of engineering and materials science.
  • SAGE Open Medical Case Reports will provide a vehicle for the publication for the many short case reports that often do not find a place in traditional primary research journals, but provide key insights into real medical cases essential for physicians, and ultimately help to improve patient outcomes. 
  • SAGE Open Medicine will cover all aspects of medicine.  It will welcome articles across the health sciences in the broadest sense, including all clinical medical specialties, veterinary medicine, nursing, allied health and dentistry.

The titles will be rigorously peer-reviewed by experts in the relevant fields and will not limit content due to page budgets or narrow thematic focus. Rather, they will accept articles solely on the basis of the scientific and methodological validity of each article. The journals will be supported by author-side article processing charges.

Tessa Picknett, Executive Director, Science Technology & Medicine, SAGE said:  "Researchers are looking for new open access outlets for their research. SAGE's mission is founded in the belief that education is intrinsically valuable and that the dissemination of usable knowledge is key to building a healthy society. The launch of these three new open access journals demonstrates SAGE's willingness to embrace new models and research communication mechanisms, with the goal of disseminating vital research to the broadest community."

The journals will be open for submissions later in the summer of 2012. For more information about SAGE's Open Access publishing see http://www.sagepub.com/openaccess.sp?utm_source=pr&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=openaccess.
