SAGE Open Access Portal Streamlines the Publishing Workflow
SAGE unveiled the SAGE Open Access Portal, which allows authors, consortia, libraries, and funders to manage the OA publishing workflow. It currently supports SAGE Choice, SAGE’s hybrid OA publishing option for more than 900 journals. Later in 2020, it will add support for SAGE’s more than 180 pure gold OA journals.
The portal has the following functionality:
- Enables automated compliance with all funder or national OA mandates
- Enables stakeholders to view and track articles through approval, license selection, and payment transaction
- Includes a shared author and bill payer interface to streamline Article Processing Charge (APC) payment processes
- Provides detailed reporting through dashboard views and downloadable reports
- Automatically notifies authors of articles eligible for OA publishing agreements and any waivers or discounts for which they are eligible
For more information, read the press release.
