Sage has an agreement with MALMAD, the Israeli Inter-University Center for Digital Information Services from 2022-2023. Corresponding authors publishing an article in 900+ subscription journals (the 2023 Sage Premier package) which offer hybrid open access publishing (Sage Choice) can be published open access at a highly discounted rate of 200 GBP.
Authors do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. Sage will contact all eligible authors (corresponding authors affiliated with the participating institutions of the consortium) to inform them of the agreement and invite them to the Sage Open Access Portal to take any additional steps needed to make their article open access under the terms of this agreement.
Gold open access journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in a gold open access journal are also entitled to a 20% discount on the prevailing article processing charge (APC) for that journal. Click here for the participating Gold journal title list. This discount will be applied automatically in the Sage Open Access Portal. Where an author is eligible for more than one discount, discounts cannot be combined but the highest discount available to the author will be applied to the APC due.
