Ordering Information

SAGE’s 2023 Subscription Agents' Price List includes GBP and USD prices for all journals published by SAGE (including Corwin Press).

SAGE offers institutional subscribers five subscription options, outlined below.

Subscription Options

New in 2023: Increased discount for E-Access subscription price:

We are increasing the discount for E-Access subscription from 10 to 15% off Combined subscription price.

  • Combined (Print + Electronic) – a Combined institutional subscription includes electronic access (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) and a print copy of each issue included in the volume for that title. This option includes temporary electronic access back to 1999 and is the list price for the journal. See Backfile Access below for full details.
  • Combined (Print +Electronic) Plus Backfile – a Combined Plus Backfile institutional subscription includes electronic access (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) and a print copy of each issue included in the volume for that title. Temporary electronic access is provided to the journal backfile back to Volume One. See Backfile Access below.
  • E–Access – an E-Access institutional subscription (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) is offered at a 15% discount off the Combined institutional subscription rate and does not include copies of the print version of the journal. Temporary electronic access is provided to journal backfile back to 1999. See Backfile Access below.
  • E–Access Plus Backfile – an E-Access Plus Backfile institutional subscription (which provides site-wide access to all content in the volume) is offered at a small increase to the E-Access institutional subscription rate and does not include copies of the print version of the journal. Temporary electronic access is provided to journal backfile back to Volume One. See Backfile Access below.
  • Print Only – the Print Only institutional subscription is offered at 2% off the Combined institutional subscription rate. Institutions subscribing at the Print-Only rate will receive complimentary temporary online access to the issues within their current order and for the previous 12 months.

E.g. For orders placed for the 2023 issues, access will be available to content in 2022 and 2023. When renewed for 2024, access will be available to 2023 and 2024 but no longer to 2022. Please note there is no charge for this temporary e-access and as a result there is no change in how VAT is calculated for print only customers.

 

Backfile Purchase

Deep Backfile for SAGE journals is available for purchase title-by-title. An annual hosting fee of $25 or £15 per journal will be charged up to a maximum of $500 or £320 (per institution per year).

Backfile Access

Backfile Access Customers maintain perpetual access to all purchased content. SAGE began offering online subscriptions in 1999. Therefore, customers who have purchased volumes (which included an online component) in 1999 through 2023 retain perpetual online access to those volumes. SAGE retains the right to provide customers with the purchased online content in a digital medium for local hosting in the future.

Combined and E-access subscriptions include temporary access to the journals backfile from the 1999 issues onwards (where available). A paid subscription order for 2023 provides perpetual access to the purchased content (the volume published in 2023) and temporary access to the back volumes published in 1999 – 2022 (where available). The temporary access to the 1999 – 2022 volumes will continue as long as the customer maintains a current paid Combined or E-access subscription.

Print Only subscriptions include complimentary temporary E-access to issues within the current order and the previous 12 months. For orders placed for the 2023 issues, access will be available to content in 2022 and 2023. When renewed for 2024, access will be available to 2023 and 2024 but no longer to 2022. Access is available as long as the customer maintains a current paid Print Only subscription.

We have digitized back issues and are pleased to be able to offer access to the deep backfile of our journals (where available) back to Volume One. Customers can lease individual backfiles by subscribing at the Combined Plus Backfile or E-Access Plus Backfile subscription rate. This rate includes an additional fee to lease the backfile back to Volume One. Alternatively, customers are able to purchase the individual backfile in return for a one-off price and a small annual hosting fee, to cover costs associated with hosting the content at SAGE Journals.

Customers wishing to lease or purchase the entire SAGE backfile should email librarysales2@sagepub.com for a quotation.

 

Multisite Ordering Instructions

Institutions wishing to provide access to their subscriptions to additional locations other than their main site* will need a multisite subscription and licence. Multisite subscription prices are calculated according to the total number of sites in addition to the main site.

*A site is defined as a single geographic location such as a campus or a corporate office.

 

Entering Your Order

When placing your order you must supply the product code combined with the twodigit price category code:

Example:

This means the code submitted for a combined subscription to Angiology is J569– CMB01.

All agents’ prices include a 3% discount on the list price. No promotional discounts apply.

The SAGE office to which you send orders and queries (and the currency in which you pay) is determined exclusively by your customer’s end-user address (see page 2). SAGE India produces a separate price list for subscribers in its territory (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, The Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka).

These rates apply to all subscriptions placed on or after 1 September 2022, regardless of volume and issue. Prices are subject to change without notice. 2023 prices will take effect on 1 September 2022.

Online account activation is only required once for each SAGE account number by first time users setting up their account.

New Journals and Frequency Changes

Listed within the price list document are the journals new to SAGE, the journals changing frequency or converting to OA and the journals leaving SAGE or ceasing publication. This list is also kept up to date online at https://us.sagepub.com/enus/nam/new-journals-and-changes

Standard Discount

SAGE’s standard discount offered to agents will remain at 3%.

Deep Discount (DDP) Rates

Customers are eligible to receive a print subscription at the DDP rate if they have a current subscription to a SAGE online-only package containing the relevant journal. DDP rates are shown in the Price List. This rate is a 75% discount off the combined rate which is the list price for the journal.

Discounted Rates

SAGE offers reduced rates to specific categories of institutions and countries. Details of these and the discount given are detailed in Special Rate columns and the Notes column in the Price List. To ensure your order is processed at the discounted rate, please ensure the correct price category is submitted.

Discounted Rates for Hybrid Journals

Although the current level of Gold Hybrid Open Access articles within SAGE journals is very low, we share the concerns of customers paying twice for Open Access content 8 via article charges and subscription costs: so called double dipping. As a result SAGE discounts the subscription price of all hybrid journals where more than 5% of content is published Gold OA.

In 2023 one journal benefitted from a reduction in subscription price.

See https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/subscription-pricing-for-hybrid-journals for further information.
