It is important to check the submission guidelines for the journal to which you have submitted your Contribution to review the journal's policy regarding author re-use.
|Version 1||original submission to the journal (before peer review)|
original submission to the journal with your revisions after peer review, often the version accepted by the editor
|Version 3||copy-edited and typeset proofs and the final published version|
SAGE's standard policies allow the following re-use rights:
The chart below includes common requests and an explanation of which 'version' of the article can be used in each circumstance.

If your re-use is not already covered by our standard re-use policy, you can request permission by following the instructions at Journals Permissions.
If you are the corresponding author of a Contribution, you will receive e-prints which are PDF offprints. Full information on what you can do with these will be provided to you with the link to the e-prints. More information on our Author e-prints policy.
It is not SAGE’s policy to provide PDFs of the published Contribution (version 3) for mounting on servers or in institutional repositories. However, you may update your own version of the article (version 1 or version 2) to reflect changes to the content made during production and convert that article into PDF form. Full details of SAGE’s policy regarding posting of PDFs are covered in the Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement you will have signed as an author.
