Scottish Higher Education Digital Library Consortium (SHEDL)

Sage has an agreement with Scottish Higher Education Digital Library Consortium (SHEDL) to publish articles open access. The agreement for participating organizations will run from  January 1, 2020, through to December 31, 2024. The details of the agreement are as follows:

To qualify for the agreement, the corresponding author must be affiliated with an eligible SHEDL institution and have an article accepted for publication between  January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2024. The participating member institution list is available here.

Subscription journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in 900+ subscription journals in the 2024 Sage Premier package which offers hybrid open access publishing (Sage Choice), can be published open access, free of charge. Charges other than the author article processing charge (APC) may still apply, please refer to individual journal submission guidelines.

Authors do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. Sage will contact all eligible authors to inform them of the agreement and invite them to the Sage Open Access Portal to take up the offer as soon as their accepted article has been received into Sage’s Production department.

Gold open access journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in a gold open access journal are also entitled to a 20% discount on the prevailing article processing charge (APC) for that journal. For participating journals view the gold journal title list. This 20% gold discount will be applied automatically in the Sage Open Access Portal.
