Publish with SAGE

SAGE is an independent international publisher of journals, books, and electronic media. Known for our commitment to quality and innovation, we are a world leader in our chosen academic, educational, and professional markets.

Innovative ideas and approaches consistently distinguish SAGE's publishing, across all of our programs. Our products include:

  • Journals at the forefront of knowledge, contributing to the disciplines of the future and delivered in varied electronic and print formats
  • Academic and reference books with breadth of vision and valuable content
  • Innovative teaching texts for college courses
  • Professional books reflecting practical approaches to new perspectives and challenges


Societies and Associations

SAGE was founded in 1965 by Sara Miller McCune to support the dissemination of usable knowledge by publishing innovative and high-quality research and teaching content. Today, we publish over 1000 journals from over 400 learned societies globally: society publishing is at the heart of what we do. 

SAGE is an independent, family owned company, and an estate plan has been put in place to ensure this continues after the lifetime of our founder. We cannot be subject to merger or acquisition by one of the publishing monoliths, which guarantees stability for our partners and preserves our vision of publishing for the future. 

We also pride ourselves on providing our partners with the optimal financial return, which is made possible by SAGE's global sales and marketing reach and our reputation of publishing the highest quality 'must have' content. 

We are experts in journals publishing with over 50 years' experience in driving quality content, citations and rankings, whilst your editorial team will retain complete independence over content decisions. SAGE has a proven track record in gaining Impact Factors for journals and increasing their rankings. SAGE recruits and retains passionate and experienced publishing staff, and the high quality of the published journal, whether in print or online, is fundamental to SAGE.

Building on SAGE’s tradition of publishing high-quality academic works in the social sciences for more than 35 years, we concentrate our efforts on providing undergraduate and graduate textbooks, as well as handbooks and professional resources. Our Books Division also includes the SAGE Reference program, which publishes encyclopedias and other reference works, and the CQ Press imprint, which focuses on textbooks in political science and public affairs. SAGE currently publishes over 600 titles per year worldwide across its imprints and has over 4,500 titles in print.

SAGE is one of the few remaining independent publishers. We are a publisher, first and foremost, who values and prizes first-rate content. Our goal is to publish books that offer innovative teaching solutions, approaches, and perspectives to the disciplines that we serve. While we are firmly guided by the needs of our market, we are driven to publish books that contribute to your students' learning experience, to your colleagues’ efforts in the classroom, and to the field.

At SAGE, we recognize that our authors and editors are among our most important assets, and we are committed to developing strong and flexible partnerships that offer the following benefits:

  • Thorough evaluation of proposals and sample material, with constructive feedback provided by experienced editors and peer reviews

Our Higher Education / Books Acquisitions Editors

K-12 Books - Corwin Press

Corwin Press publishes leading-edge books for practicing elementary and secondary educators that offer fresh insights, conclusions, and recommendations for action. Our goal is to publish substantive and practical books that contribute to practitioners' knowledge while also being readable and useful.

What is an "ideal" Corwin Press book?

  1. It is based on theory, research, and/or practical experience.
  2. It discusses the implications of that theory, research, or experience for universal practice.
  3. It draws on real-world examples and practices to illustrate points.
  4. It offers practical, hands-on advice to educators who want to be successful in their chosen careers.
  5. Most often, it is authored or co-authored, rather than an edited book.
  6. Our audiences need substantive works that are also 'user-friendly' and tailored to their busy schedules.
