SAGE Signs Its First Read-and-Publish OA Agreement With a U.S. University
SAGE signed a transformative OA agreement with Penn State University “to expand access to scholarly content and increase visibility of Penn State research. This partnership marks SAGE’s first full read-and-publish agreement with a U.S. institution. … The agreement covers access to and article publishing charges (APC) for Penn State faculty reading and publishing in nearly all SAGE journals. Their articles will be made open upon publication and article authors will be able to select their open access licenses while retaining their article copyright.” The agreement is in effect until Dec. 31, 2023.
“With this new agreement, Penn State corresponding authors’ work can be published in both hybrid and pure Gold OA journals and can be immediately open and visible without incurring additional cost for authors, libraries, or readers,” says Mihoko Hosoi, associate dean for collections, research, and scholarly communications at Penn State University Libraries.
