The details of the agreement are as follows:
Gold open access journals: Corresponding authors publishing an article in a Gold open access journal are entitled to a 15% discount on the prevailing article processing charge (APC) for that journal. For participating journals view the Gold journal title list. This discount will be applied automatically in the Sage Open Access Portal. Where an author is eligible for more than one discount, discounts cannot be combined but the highest discount available to the author will be applied to the APC due.
The corresponding author must be affiliated with a member institution participating in the license agreement for their article to qualify for the article processing charge (APC) discount. The participating member organization list for Universidad del Pais Vasco is available here.
Authors do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. Sage will contact all eligible authors to inform them of the agreement and invite them to the Sage Open Access Portal to take up the offer as soon as their accepted article has been received into Sage’s Production department.
