Alumni Access

University alumni may have access to the content hosted on the SAGE Journals, SAGE Research Methods and SAGE Knowledge platforms through their university library, based on their university's current and active holdings. All alumni registered with subscribing or purchasing libraries will be able to access the above SAGE products, including more than 750 scholarly and professional journals at no extra fee.

University libraries already support current students and scholars with access to online resources through both on-site and remote services. This license extends this offering to alumni via IP address, ATHENS or SHIBBOLETH through the institution’s account. SAGE doesn’t have the information or systems necessary to authenticate an individual as being an alumnus of a particular institution, so institutions will need to manage the authentication process and provide alumni with an ATHENS or SHIBBOLETH profile, or provide a route through the institutional IP network.

Digital Rights Management

"Reasonable Amount" shall mean not more than ten percent (10%) of any individual book or journal issue where these are included in a database, and not more than five percent (5%) of the total database content.
