Libertas Academica Acquisition

Founded in 2004, LA is an independent open access publisher specializing in clinical medicine, biological sciences and chemistry. The publishing portfolio covers topics such as cardiology, neurology, biochemistry, genetics, and analytical chemistry. Effective immediately, SAGE will publish the full journal portfolio of 83 titles.

SAGE Open Access Initiatives
SAGE is the world’s largest independent academic publisher and is committed to global dissemination of research. We have published open access journals for a number of years with the goal of disseminating vital research to the broadest community. SAGE’s mission is founded in the belief that education is intrinsically valuable, and the dissemination of useable knowledge is a key foundation in building a healthy society.

In December 2010 we launched SAGE Open, the first open access journal spanning across the social and behavioural sciences and humanities, and subsequently launched SAGE Open Medicine and SAGE Open Medical Case Reports in 2012. 2014 saw the launch of Big Data & SocietyResearch and Politics and many more titles since including AERA Open, DIGITAL HEALTH, Social Media + Society, and Scars, Burns & Healing.
