What is Open Access?

Modified on Wed, 03 Apr 2024 at 12:35 PM

Open Access (OA) is a publishing model that makes research free to read upon publication. The publication process is supported by an Article Processing Charge (APC). The author, institution or funding body usually pays for this.

Sage has three routes for Open Access publication: gold Open Access journals, hybrid Open Access (Sage Choice), and green Open Access archiving

Please visit Sage's Open Access page to learn more about Open Access publishing opportunities, see if Sage has an Open Access agreement with your institution.
