Guidelines for SAGE Authors

Authors Re-Using Their Own Work

SAGE Journal authors are able to reuse their Contribution in certain circumstances without requiring permission from SAGE. It is important to check your signed Contributor Agreement and/or the submission guidelines for the journal to which you submitted your Contribution to review the journal's policy regarding author reuse.

 

Gold Open Access and SAGE Choice

If you wish to reuse an Open Access Contribution published under a Creative Commons License, see Reusing Open Access and SAGE Choice Content for more information.

 

Green Open Access: SAGE’s Archiving Policy

Green Open Access Policy

  • You may share the Original Submission anywhere at any time.
  • Once the Contribution has been accepted for publication, you may post the Accepted Version of the Contribution on your own personal website, your department's website or the repository of your institution without any restrictions. (see Posting to an Institutional Repository)
  • Twelve (12) months after the date of initial publication, you may arrange for the Accepted Version of the Contribution to be made publicly available on any non-commercial platform (including a database or repository not affiliated with your institution). Where a repository or database enables depositing of a manuscript with the ability to delay its public availability, you may deposit the manuscript at any time after acceptance with the condition that the manuscript is not made publicly available until 12 months after its publication in the journal.
  • You may use the Final, Published Version for your own teaching needs or to supply on an individual basis to research colleagues, provided that such supply is not for commercial purposes.
  • You may use the Final, Published Version in a book authored or edited by you at any time after publication in the journal. This does not apply to books where you are contributing a chapter to a book authored or edited by someone else.
  • You may not post the Final, Published Version on a website or in a repository without permission from SAGE.

When posting or reusing your Contribution under this policy, appropriate credit must be given to the SAGE journal as the original source of content. After your Contribution has been accepted for publication and until it is assigned a DOI, please include a statement that your Contribution has been accepted for publication in the journal. Once full citation information for your Contribution is available, please include this with your article, in a format similar to the following: Author(s), Article Title, Journal Title (Journal Volume Number and Issue Number) pp. xx-xx. Copyright © [year] (Copyright Holder). DOI: [DOI number].
