SAGE Competes Migration to Next Generation SAGE Journals Online

SAGE announced that, with the support of HighWire 2.0 (H20) technology, it has completed the migration of its more than 560 journals to the next generation of SAGE Journals Online. To mark the successful migration, SAGE is offering a 6 week free trial to SAGE Journals Online from Sept. 1 until Oct. 15. Some enhancements included with this latest iteration of SAGE Journals Online include advanced search across more than 50 disciplines, pop-up previews of article abstracts, and the ability to hide certain features (such as author affiliations and related links) from view.

To ensure that the migration caused minimal disruption to access, this upgrade was scheduled to coincide with academic summer recess. Access control for institutions and individuals were not affected by the migration. Administrative features and access to usage reports will also remain the same.

The core of this change is infrastructural and “behind the scenes.” The H2O infrastructure is designed to cooperate with emerging web services and technologies, as well as to comply with proven industry standards for content delivery. Because the system architecture seamlessly accommodates content structured in different ways, H2O is designed not only to accommodate the latest technology, but also to anticipate the technology of the future.

A major goal of the platform upgrade was to improve the user experience and keep readers in context as they conduct research. The new interface is based upon a flexible three-column design that makes features available without taking attention away from the substantive article content. Features most closely associated with the manuscript pages are placed closest to it. For full-text journals, full citations pop up when you hover over reference numbers within the text of an article. For all journals, keywords are now hyperlinked and perform quick searches of that term within all content in that journal.
