SAGE CROWNED INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER'S GUILD ACADEMIC & PROFESSIONAL PUBLISHER OF THE YEAR 2012

London, UK (March 9, 2012) – SAGE is delighted to be the Independent Publisher's Guild (IPG) Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year 2012. The announcement was made last night at a glittering ceremony at Heythrop House, Oxfordshire as part of the IPG's annual conference.

The judges from the Independent Publisher's Guild commented:

SAGE won this category with a thoroughly professional publishing programme, wide-ranging digital activity, high production standards and sharp global strategies. Judges also noted its ability to attract and retain outstanding staff and authors, and said it had retained a strong sense of independence while growing into a big player. "SAGE knows its market and does what it does phenomenally well. It consistently attracts top talent and is very dynamic internationally."

Now firmly established as one of the highlights of the publishing calendar, the IPG Awards are in their sixth year. The IPG celebrates 50 years in 2012 as the industry's membership organization supporting independent publishers in the UK to thrive.

"We are delighted that the IPG has recognized SAGE with this award," said Ziyad Marar, Global Publishing Director, SAGE. "We are very proud of our independence, which enables us to focus on the broad publishing needs of our communities and to make decisions for the long term. We passionately believe that education and scholarship are intrinsically valuable, and that publishers play a key role in shaping and disseminating ideas. To be recognized as the IPG Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year stands as testament to our authors and our talented and committed people across the company, who put this vision into practice every day. I'd like to congratulate the IPG on celebrating 50 years of supporting independent publishing and we look forward to another 50."
