On winning the award, SAGE’s Digital Sales Manager, Huw Alexander made the following remarks:
“Since our founding, we have firmly believed that education is at the heart of any healthy society. Ensuring that we, as an academic industry, create a level playing field in which research can be accessed by all, is central to that belief and mission. Being named as the ABC Accessible Publisher of the year is a great honour for us – it is a great credit to the work done by the team and clearly illustrates SAGE’s commitment to ensuring that teaching and research is accessed by all on a global scale. We will continue to work even harder to improve accessibility standards at SAGE and throughout the publishing industry."
