Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has announced that it will publish open access any accepted research that is relevant to the treatment, transmission, cure, or social impact of COVID-19 without requiring article processing charges (APCs). Additionally, SAGE will fast track these papers for rapid publication and dissemination.
Waived APCs will last for the duration of the crisis. To request to waive an APC, researchers can either contact the journal’s editorial office upon submission or email firstname.lastname@example.org upon article acceptance. SAGE recently launched a freely accessible research collection of medical and SBS research relating to COVID-19 and pandemics and has signed and committed to the Wellcome coordinated statement on sharing research data and findings relevant to the outbreak at https://wellcome.ac.uk/press-release/sharing-research-data-and-findings-relevant-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak.
SAGE Publishing has made several resources available at https://www.socialsciencespace.com/2020/03/16-answers-to-your-questions-about-teaching-online/ to support instructors and students as they make the transition to online teaching and learning.
