SAGE Adds Royal Society of Medicine Journals to Its Collection
The SAGE Journals platform now includes offerings from The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM). In November 2012, SAGE Publications announced an agreement with RSM for the transfer of its 28 journals to SAGE, including its 200-year-old flagship publication, the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. SAGE now handles customer service for all of the titles in RSM’s publishing program.
RSM is based in the U.K., but it provides professional development titles to medical practitioners and students worldwide. Its main objective is to promote connections and idea exchange on the topic of medicine between the medical community and the public.
Journals now on SAGE’s platform include Acta Radiologica, Annals of Clinical Biochemistry, Clinical Ethics, Experimental Biology and Medicine, Handbook of Practice Management, International Journal of STD & AIDS, Journal of Medical Biography, Laboratory Animals, and Tropical Doctor.
Until July 13, 2013, every journal in the archive is available for free viewing so that interested parties can peruse titles before deciding on a subscription. Current subscribers have continuous access to journal articles dating from 1999.
In the November announcement, SAGE reported that it would begin digitizing its journal archives. While the process is slow, SAGE intends to finish the project later this year.
