Please note, because package information was already released for 2015, these titles will not be included in our SAGE Premier and other SAGE packages until 2016.

Orders via subscription agents

If you are using a subscription agent, please instruct your agent as usual. We are notifying all subscription agents of this change of publisher and they will be able to handle your query.

My subscription includes online access to the journals. Is there any change in access?

You will be able to continue to access the issues of all journals to which you have subscribed via Vathek Publishing while we migrate the journals in the coming weeks to SAGE Journals. Once live on the SAGE Journals platform we will implement redirects from the present sites.

If you have an existing account with SAGE then the Vathek journal(s) you subscribe to will automatically be added to your SAGE account. You will be able to access Vathek journals content in the same way as your other journal content.

If by subscribing to a Vathek journal you are new to SAGE then an account will be set up for you and the account administrator will send an email with login details for your account.

How will I retrieve my usage statistics?

You can continue to access usage statistics as before and we will work with the current online hosting and subscription management partners (respectively Allen Press, and Portland Press) to enable continued access to usage statistics as the journals migrate to SAGE subscription management and hosting by SAGE’s online platform partner, HighWire Press.

Who do I contact if I have any questions?

If you have any queries relating to the acquisition, please contact
