Ordering Information

SAGE’s 2018 Subscription Agents Price List includes GBP and USD prices for all journals published by SAGE (including Corwin Press).

SAGE offers institutional subscribers five subscription options, outlined below.

Subscription Options

  • Combined (Print + Electronic) – a Combined institutional subscription includes electronic access (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) and a print copy of each issue included in the volume for that title. This option includes temporary electronic access back to 1999 and is the list price for the journal. See Backfile Access below for full details.
  • Combined (Print +Electronic) Plus Backfile – a Combined Plus Backfile institutional subscription includes electronic access (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) and a print copy of each issue included in the volume for that title. Temporary electronic access is provided to the journal backfile back to Volume One. See Backfile Access below.
  • E–Access – an E-Access institutional subscription (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) is offered at a 10% discount off the Combined institutional subscription rate and does not include copies of the print version of the journal. Temporary electronic access is provided to journal backfile back to 1999. See Backfile Access below.
  • E–Access Plus Backfile – an E-Access Plus Backfile institutional subscription (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) is offered at a small increase to the E-Access institutional subscription rate and does not include copies of the print version of the journal. Temporary electronic access is provided to journal backfile back to Volume One. See Backfile Access below.
  • Print Only – the Print Only institutional subscription is offered at 2% off the Combined institutional subscription rate. Institutions subscribing at the Print-Only rate will receive complimentary temporary online access to the issues within their current order and for the previous 12 months.

E.g. For orders placed for the 2018 issues, access will be available to content in 2017 and 2018. When renewed for 2019, access will be available to 2018 and 2019 but no longer to 2017. Please note there is no charge for this temporary e-access and as a result there is no change in how VAT is calculated for print only customers.

 

Backfile Purchase

Deep Backfile for SAGE journals is available for purchase title-by-title. An annual hosting fee of $25 or £15 per journal will be charged up to a maximum of $500 or £320 (per institution per year).

The complete backfile of SAGE journals (570+ titles) is also available for lease or purchase. Please email backfilesales@sagepub.com for a quotation.

 

Backfile Access

Customers maintain perpetual access to all purchased content. SAGE began offering online subscriptions in 1999. Therefore, customers who have purchased volumes (which included an online component) in 1999 through 2017 retain perpetual online access to those volumes. SAGE retains the right to provide customers with the purchased online content in a digital medium for local hosting in the future.

Combined and E-access subscriptions include temporary access to the journals backfile from the 1999 issues onwards (where available). A paid subscription order for 2018 provides perpetual access to the purchased content (the volume published in 2018) and temporary access to the back volumes published in 1999 – 2018 (where available). The temporary access to the 1999 – 2016 volumes will continue as long as the customer maintains a current paid Combined or E-access subscription.

Print Only subscriptions now include complimentary temporary E-access to issues within the current order and the previous 12 months. For example, for orders placed for 2016 issues, access will be available to content in 2017 and 2018. When renewed for 2019, access will be available to 2018 and 2019 but no longer to 2017. Access is available as long as the customer maintains a current paid Print Only subscription.

We have digitized back issues and are pleased to be able to offer access to the deep backfile of our journals (where available) back to Volume 1. Customers can lease individual backfiles by subscribing at the Combined Plus Backfile or E-Access Plus Backfile subscription rate. This rate includes an additional fee to lease the backfile back to Volume 1. Alternatively, customers are able to purchase the individual backfile in return for a one-off price and a small annual hosting fee, to cover costs associated with hosting the content at SAGE Journals.

Customers wishing to lease or purchase the entire SAGE backfile should email backfilesales@sagepub.com for a quotation.

All agents’ prices include a 3% discount on the list price. No promotional discounts apply.

The SAGE office to which you send orders and queries (and the currency in which you pay) is determined exclusively by your customer’s end-user address (see page 2).

SAGE India produces a separate price list for subscribers in its territory (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, The Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka).

These rates apply to all subscriptions placed on or after 1 September 2017, regardless of volume and issue. Prices are subject to change without notice. 2019 prices will take effect on 1 September 2018.

 

Account Activation for Online Access

To activate an account, customers should go to http://online.sagepub.com, click the Activation/Acct Mgr link and follow the instructions on screen. Activation is only required once for each SAGE account number and is only required the first time users set up their account. Renewal orders or new subscriptions on activated accounts DO NOT require additional set up or activation. During the activation process, customers may select IP or username/password recognition. Customers attempting to activate an account on SAGE Journals will require their SAGE account number (usually a 10 digit number beginning with 1 or 0).

In addition to the SAGE Journals platform, SAGE journals are also available through the following online access intermediaries: EBSCOhost Electronic Journals Service and OCLC FirstSearch Electronic Collections Online. SAGE makes no additional charge (beyond the subscription costs) for access via intermediaries; however, the intermediaries may charge for the use of their service.

SAGE Journals supports both Athens and Shibboleth federated access authentication.

For any queries regarding online access, please contact onlinesupport@sagepub.co.uk (Europe, Middle East, Asia-Pacific, and Africa) or onlinesupportus@sagepub.com (Americas).

Terms and conditions of our site license and further details may be found on our website at https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/page/subscription-agents.

 

New Journals & Frequency Changes

Listed within the price list document are the journals new to SAGE, the journals changing frequency and the journals leaving SAGE or ceasing publication. This list is also kept up to date online on New Journals and Changes.

 

Standard Discount

SAGE’s standard discount offered to agents will remain at 3%.

 

Deep Discount (DDP) Rates

Customers are eligible to receive a print subscription at the DDP rate if they have a current subscription to a SAGE online-only package containing the relevant journal. DDP rates are shown in the Price List. This rate is a 75% discount off the combined rate which is the list price for the journal.

 

Discounted Rates

SAGE offers reduced rates to specific categories of institutions and countries. Details of these and the discount given are detailed in Special Rate columns and the Notes column in the Price List. To ensure your order is processed at the discounted rate, please ensure the correct price category is submitted.

 

Discounted Rates for Hybrid Journals

Although the current level of Gold Hybrid Open Access articles within SAGE journals is very low, we share the concerns of customers paying twice for Open Access content via article charges and subscription costs: so called double dipping. As a result SAGE discounts the subscription price of all hybrid journals where more than 5% of content is published Gold OA.

In 2015 12 journals benefitted from a reduction in subscription prices. In 2016 a further 3 journals will see reductions in the price increase the journal would have received. All price reductions are clearly labeled on the price list.

See https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/subscription-pricing-for-hybrid-journals for further information.

 

VAT

Please note the following changes to how we are charging customers for VAT on electronic journals subscriptions.

  • From September 2015 we will be charging VAT on 46% of the Combined or Combined Plus Subscription price.
  • Since January 2015 the rate of VAT charged on digital services to consumers (i.e. non-VAT registered customers) in EU countries has been at their applicable local rate, not the UK VAT rate. There is no change for Institutions in the EU (outside the UK); if these customers provide us with their valid local VAT registration number no VAT will be charged.

E Access and E Access Plus Backfile

If you are in the UK, you will be charged VAT (20%) on your subscription.  

Combined Access and Combined Access Plus Backfile

If you are in the UK, you will be charged VAT (20%) on 46% of the Combined or Combined plus subscription before agent’s discount.

Print Only

No VAT will be charged

You will be required to apply the correct VAT treatment on the supply to the final customer, which depends on your local VAT rules and the location and VAT registration status of the customer.

 

Back Volumes

Back issues in print for the last two years only (2016 and 2017) are available at the single-issue price from the relevant SAGE office. Back volumes are charged at current (2018) subscription rates.

Earlier back issues of many SAGE titles are now available from Periodical Services Company.

Sample Copies

For most of our journals, a sample issue may be viewed free of charge at SAGE Journals (http://online.sagepub.com). Simply navigate to the journal page of interest and click the Sample Issue link.
