SAGE is the world's 5th largest journals publisher. Its portfolio includes more than 750 journals spanning the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science, Technology & Medicine.
And, importantly, SAGE supports both Gold OA publication and Green OA archiving:
- SAGE Choice is offered on all SAGE’s traditional subscription journals and allows authors to make (via payment of an article processing charge, APC) their published article freely available to all internet users
- SAGE pure-Gold OA journals where all the articles in each title are freely available to internet users (publication is also via payment of an APC)
- SAGE also supports Green OA archiving for authors publishing in traditional subscription journals, ie. the complementary depositing of articles in Aston Research Explorer (powered by PURE)
Library Services at Aston has a generous institutional-based discount scheme for Gold OA with SAGE and funds are still available to our researchers, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in applying for an APC. See here for more details of Gold OA (and the related conditions).
