This agreement is available to current University staff and students; visitors are not eligible.

Open to all University of Southampton corresponding authors. Includes 900+ SAGE Choice subscription journals in the current SAGE Premier package, the IMechE Journal Collection and the Royal Society of Medicine Collection, which offer hybrid open access publishing.

  • Authors in subscription journals do not need to take any action to benefit from this offer. As soon an institution is set up as part of the agreement, Sage will contact all eligible authors to inform them of the Open Access agreement with Jisc and to invite them to the Sage Open Access Portal to take up the offer as soon as their accepted article has been received into Sage’s Production department.
  • Publisher webpage with information on the Sage Read and Publish agreement with Jisc Collections.

The deal does not include fully open access titles, but corresponding authors are eligible for a 20% discount in the open access cost (APC) for Sage fully open access journals. If your article acknowledges UKRI or CRUK funding and you would like to publish in a fully open access journal, please complete our APC application form prior to submitting your article to ensure we can cover the cost.
