Why Choose SAGE?

Independence, financial return, worldwide reach, technology, innovative marketing, unrivalled editorial support, excellent production services

 

Entering into a new publishing partnership is a major decision for any society or organization. We believe that the way we collaborate with our partners and the publishing services we offer present a compelling case for you to consider working with us on your journal. 

SAGE was founded in 1965 by Sara Miller McCune to support the dissemination of usable knowledge by publishing innovative and high-quality research and teaching content. Today, we publish over 1000 journals from over 500 learned societies globally: society publishing is at the heart of what we do. 

SAGE is an independent, family owned company, and an estate plan has been put in place to ensure this continues after the lifetime of our founder. We cannot be subject to merger or acquisition by one of the publishing monoliths, which guarantees stability for our partners and preserves our vision of publishing for the future. 

We also pride ourselves on providing our partners with the optimal financial return, which is made possible by SAGE’s global sales and marketing reach and our reputation of publishing the highest quality ‘must have’ content. 

We will work in close collaboration with you to support the development of your journal at every stage, driving quality content, citations and rankings, whilst your editorial team will retain complete independence over content decisions. SAGE has a proven track record in gaining Impact Factors for journals and increasing their rankings. SAGE recruits and retains passionate and experienced publishing staff; their knowledge and drive make for the most productive and insightful working relationships. Management of the production process is not outsourced, and the high quality of the published journal, whether in print or online, is fundamental to SAGE.  

We guarantee a seamless transition from your current publisher, a wealth of experience, and to strictly follow the code of practice set out by the NISO Transfer Code of Practice.
