The environment at SAGE is personal and inviting. Placing a high value on the relationship with our authors, we work diligently to form strong publishing partnerships. Our acquisitions editors are among the best in their respective fields, and each has many years of experience. Eager to share their knowledge and publishing expertise, they'll work closely with you—from signing to sales—to ensure that your book reaches the highest level of success. With your acquisitions editor in the lead, the editorial, production, and marketing teams will work together to keep you informed and involved at each stage of the publishing process.

Our production team sets the highest standards for editing, design, and page layout—and they will produce your book in a timely manner. Taking full advantage of new technologies, our streamlined production process allows us to provide one of the most competitive production schedules in the industry. You'll find that our systems remain flexible and responsive to the needs of each individual project. Many leading authors rely on SAGE to publish their works with accuracy and efficiency.

Strategic Marketing and Sales

We employ a multichannel marketing and sales strategy through targeted direct-marketing efforts—including electronic marketing, direct mail, telemarketing and sales, advertising, book review publicity, and representation at professional association meetings/conventions—as well as cooperative marketing and sales with online retailers, bookstores, and book wholesalers. You can be sure your book will receive maximum exposure to all relevant and appropriate audiences. Since we're a global company, you'll also have the advantage of international marketing and sales efforts through our offices in the U.K. and India. Learn more.
