Sage has a wide range of Open Access agreements to support authors from various institutions. Our Open Access agreements provide differing levels of discounts and waivers on the Article Processing Charge (APC) for Open Access publication in our Hybrid and Gold journals, making it easier for authors to publish their research Open Access. 

Is my institution part of an Open Access agreement with Sage?

Your institution might assist in covering the Open Access article processing charge (APC) via an Open Access Agreement with Sage. Details of individual agreements, the benefits they offer, and the journals they are applicable in, can be found on our webpage for Sage's Open Access agreementsTo find your institution, click on the country or region in which it is located. On each of these page a list of institutions included the agreement is attached, and the page specifies the Open Access agreement details. 

Please note, eligibility for our Open Access agreements is based on a variety of factors. Therefore, even if your institution is on the list your article needs to meet the other eligibility criteria.
