SAGE launches new portal to streamline open access publishing process -

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced the launch of a new portal that enables authors, consortia, libraries, and funders to manage the open access publishing workflow. Named the SAGE Open Access Portal, the platform currently supports SAGE Choice, the publisher’s hybrid Open Access (OA) publishing option, for over 900 journals. Later in 2020, it will be extended to support SAGE’s more than 180 pure Gold OA journals.

To meet the needs of a variety of stakeholders, the Portal enables automated compliance with all funder or national OA mandates. Stakeholders can view and track articles through approval, license selection, and payment transaction. It includes a shared author and bill payer interface to streamline Article Processing Charge (APC) payment processes. Additionally, it provides detailed reporting through dashboard views and downloadable reports. The new portal also automatically notifies authors of articles eligible for OA publishing agreements and any waivers or discounts for which they are eligible.

SAGE was an early driver of OA publishing: the company was a founding board member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association; one of two publishing partners in the European Commission-funded FP7 Framework project on the Study of Open Access Publishing; and launched the first broad-spectrum OA journal aimed specifically at the Social and Behavioral Sciences, SAGE Open. SAGE has already engaged with several national consortia to facilitate the transition to open access and expect to extend these in the foreseeable future. In 2020 SAGE is also piloting an institutional level agreement with the University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
