SAGE open access journals

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at a 20% discount in SAGE open access journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher for 2023 and what it means for you here.

A 20% discount on the open access publishing fee is available through an agreement between the library and SAGE. The agreement applies to SAGE open access journals (Gold Open Access Journals).

Terms and conditions

  • You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
  • Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
  • Use your university e-mail ending with @umu.se. The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
  • The CC licenses offered may vary depending on the journal. Authors with a CC BY requirement from a research funder are recommended to contact the journal if CC BY is not offered directly.

How the publishing process works

A 20% discount will automatically be deducted from the publishing fee, provided you fulfill the terms of the agreement. The discount cannot be combined with other discounts. You should choose yourself (or whoever will pay the fee) as bill payer and not nominate Umeå University as paying institution.
