SAGE Insight Shines Spotlight on Research
Academic and professional publisher SAGE has announced the launch of a new online resource, SAGE Insight, which links to highly topical articles from across the 560 scholarly journals hosted online on SAGE's online platform, SAGE Journals Online. Drawn from both new and archived content, the articles on SAGE Insight are designed to provide a fresh perspective on major issues facing the public and policymakers.
"SAGE Insight provides content that will inform both public discussion and policymaking, covering everything from crime to medical practices, from psychology to education," said Clive Parry, global marketing director, SAGE.
The articles selected will demonstrate the role of academic research in the understanding of society and human behavior and show how academic research is relevant to both public discussion and policymaking. Each post will link to a free research article on SAGE Journals Online to enable readers to access the research directly. The posts will also appear on Twitter (www.twitter.com/SAGE_insight).
"SAGE Insight provides our journal authors with a new channel to reach out to media, bloggers, policymakers, and the general reader," added Parry. "Initially, content for the site will be selected by our team internally, but our aim is that our authors will direct us to relevant articles that will inform and engage public debate."
Authors contributing to SAGE Journals Online are encouraged to suggest their articles for inclusion on the blog by filling out a "suggest your article" form.
