What is hybrid Open Access (Sage Choice)?

Hybrid Open Access, also known as Sage Choice, allows authors to transform their articles published in traditional subscription journals into open access format, thereby enabling wider access to their work.

The fundamental concept of Open Access publishing, where research articles are freely available to readers upon publication, is supported by an Article Processing Charge (APC) paid by the author, institution, or funding body. This means that readers can access the article regardless of their subscription status, fostering greater dissemination of research findings. Authors opting for Sage Choice may therefore incur an Article Processing Charge (APC), which covers various publishing costs and ensures the sustainability of the Open Access model.
