SAGE has an agreement with 117 German academic institutions (participants of the German Sage Journals Consortium, organised by Bayerische Staatsbibliothek) for 2019. Articles by corresponding authors affiliated with the participating institutions can be made open access for a highly discounted rate within subscription journals which offer SAGE Choice, SAGE’s hybrid open access option, and are part of their institution subscription package. Corresponding authors publishing an article in a gold open access journal may be entitled to a 20% discount on the prevailing article processing charge (APC) for that journal.
Authors do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. SAGE will contact all eligible authors (corresponding authors affiliated with the participating institutions) to inform them of the agreement and invite them to the SAGE Open Access Portal to take any additional steps needed to make their article open access under the terms of this agreement.
For more information please get in touch with the primary contact at your institution.
