Sage has an agreement with eligible Austrian research institutions, members of the Austrian Academic Libraries Consortium, to publish articles open access. The agreement for participating organizations will run from January 01, 2023 through to December 31, 2025. The details of the agreement are as follows:
To qualify for the agreement, the corresponding author must be affiliated with with one of the institutions listed and have an article accepted for publication between January 01, 2023 and December 31, 2025. The participating member institution list is available here.
Subscription journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in either Sage Premier 2024, Sage Humanities & Social Sciences 2024, or Sage Science, Technology and Medicine 2024 packages which offer hybrid open access publishing (Sage Choice), can be published open access, free of charge*. Charges other than the author article process charge (APC) may still apply, please refer to individual journal submission guidelines.
*Authors affiliated with FHWien of WKW can publish open access in the Sage Humanities & Social Sciences 2024 at a highly discounted rate of £200 GBP.
Authors in subscription journals do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. Sage will contact all eligible authors informing them of the Open Access agreement with KEMÖ inviting 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.
Please note all authors should still complete the steps to sign Sage’s Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement on acceptance as normal. Sage still requires this agreement for your article to proceed to production at Sage. Through the Sage Open Access Portal, you will automatically receive an open access (Sage Choice) Contributor’s Agreement that will replace the earlier signed agreement.
Gold open access journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in a gold open access journal are also entitled to a 15% discount on the prevailing article processing charge (APC) for that journal. For participating journals view the gold journal title list. This 15% gold discount will be applied automatically in the Sage Open Access Portal.
