Open Access Publishing Options

Here at Sage, we are seeking to make it as simple and straightforward as possible for you to find a route to publishing Open Access with our Open Access options. Browse the options below to find out more.


The Gold Route

We publish a rapidly growing list of Gold Open Access journals. All articles are rigorously peer-reviewed retaining the quality hallmarks of the academic publishing process that authors would experience in publishing in any traditional Sage journal. Most Sage pure gold open access journals are supported by the payment of an article processing charge (APC) by the author, institution or research funder of the accepted manuscript. For more detail visit the specific journal websites.

Additional waiver requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
