Our aim is to act in a fair and responsible way to avoid our customers paying twice for OA content via article charges and subscription costs: so called "double dipping."
How do we calculate the discounts?
We will continually review and refine our policies to ensure SAGE continues to work with the best industry practices.
New titles discounted in 2020
These 5 titles have had a discount applied to their subscription price, based on the proportion of content within them published as hybrid OA since they have now crossed the 5% threshold as stated above. This discount has been applied to the 2020 price increase these journals would have received.
This is the first time these titles have reached or exceeded the threshold of 5% which is why they have been listed as ‘new’ for the 2020 pricing.
Environment and Planning C 1%
European Journal of International Relations 1%
International Journal of Artificial Organs, The 5%
Journal of Biological Rhythms 3%
Qualitative Health Research 2%
Titles Previously Discounted
The list of 31 titles below have been discounted previously according to the proportion of Gold OA content within them. (see point 2 above)
We only discount further if the proportion of Gold OA content increases. If it doesn’t, the discounted price remains the same. If the proportion decreases from the previous year we do not reverse the discount. This becomes the base price. To provide transparency we have listed all previous discounts (by the most recent year first) for these titles.
The journals displayed in bold are those which have undergone a further incremental uplift in discount in 2020 as the proportion of Gold OA content has increased.
