SAGE participates in CHORUS, an innovative non-profit organization that supports funders, publishers, authors, and institutions to deliver public access to articles reporting on funded research. Through its suite of services and best practices, CHORUS provides a sustainable solution for agencies and publishers to deliver public access to published articles reporting on funded research in the United States. It leverages widely used technology to facilitate a simple compliance process, optimized search and dashboard services, and multiparty archiving and preservation capabilities. For more information please visit https://www.chorusaccess.org/about/.
Through its participation in the CHORUS initiative, in response to government or funder requirements, SAGE Publishing will make the final Version of Record of an article publicly available on the SAGE journal website and, when appropriate, the relevant funder’s website 12 months after publication. Most SAGE articles are published under an Exclusive Licence to Publish or Assignment of Copyright agreement, which include a description of the journal’s author archiving and re-use policy. Please visit Green Open Access: SAGE’s archiving policy for more information.
