SAGE is dedicated to developing textbooks that support students’ learning as well as lecturers’ teaching and are proud to publish key textbooks by leading figures in the field covering core topics such as health promotion, public health and research methods.
We also publish over 100 highly-read and cited journals (to support academics, students and researchers) in the health and nursing discipline, with titles such as Health Promotion Practice, Perspectives in Public Health, Global Health Promotion and Health Education Behaviour.
SAGE Publishingtoday announces that it is to begin publishing Public Health Reports (PHR) in partnership with the US Public Health Service and the U.S. Surgeon General. Published in collaboration with the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), PHR has been a resource for the public health community since 1878 and is dedicated to public health practice, research, viewpoints, and commentaries.
Some subscription journals charge authors page or publication charges to publish their article. There has been ambiguity when an article, from one of these journals, has any of these associated costs as well as open access (OA) as to what should be charged. Therefore, SAGE is clarifying its policy on the subject (July 2022).
