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 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 The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY-NC license.

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.
