As a leading international publisher of books, journals and electronic media, SAGE is a natural home for authors, editors and societies with a tradition of producing high-quality academic works in the social sciences.

Our authors and editors are of the utmost important to us, and we work closely with them to curate and produce the most outstanding titles in the fields we cover, including undergraduate and graduate textbooks, as well as handbooks, reference and professional resources.

We are dedicated to supporting authors, and developing parternships that deliver:

  • Thorough evaluation of proposals and sample material, with constructive feedback provided by experienced editors and peer reviews
  • Involvement and support from your SAGE team throughout the writing and development process
  • High quality book production
  • Global promotion, marketing, sales, and distribution

Below you'll find useful resources to make a book proposal and publication as easy as possible.
