Institutions with an open access prepaid account (OAPA) have a fund with SAGE which can be used to cover open access processing charges (APCs) in both gold open access and hybrid journals.
If you are an institution that would like to open an OAPA with SAGE, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a list of all institutions that currently have an OAPA with SAGE. To use your institution’s OAPA funds, contact your institution’s librarian for more information.
When wishing to use an OAPA for an APC payable through the SAGE Open Access Portal in the assign Bill Payer steps select your institution as the Bill Payer. This will automate a payment request to your administrator to approve or decline the payment request. Where approved your administrator can select the OAPA as their payment method. You will receive confirmation the payment decision and, where approved, no further steps are required on your part.
