Publishing with SAGE Publications - the academic and professional publisher of choicePublish with SAGE


SAGE Publication maintains its commitment to produce journals, books and electronic media content of high quality that reflects a passion for knowledge and education. Known for its commitment to quality and innovation, SAGE is a world leader in its chosen scholarly, educational, and professional market domain.

Innovative ideas and approaches consistently distinguish SAGE's publishing, across all of our lists. Our publications include:

  • Academic and reference books with a breadth of vision and value content
  • Innovative teaching texts for college courses
  • Professional books reflecting practical approach to new perspectives and challenges
  • Serious non-fiction books for the informed and discerning reader


Societies and Associations

SAGE was founded in 1965 by Sara Miller McCune to support the dissemination of usable knowledge by publishing innovative and high-quality research and teaching content. Today, we publish over 1000 journals from over 500 learned societies globally: society publishing is at the heart of what we do. 

SAGE is an independent, family owned company, and an estate plan has been put in place to ensure this continues after the lifetime of our founder. We cannot be subject to merger or acquisition by one of the publishing monoliths, which guarantees stability for our partners and preserves our vision of publishing for the future. 

We also pride ourselves on providing our partners with the optimal financial return, which is made possible by SAGE's global sales and marketing reach and our reputation of publishing the highest quality 'must have' content. 

We are experts in journals publishing with over 50 years' experience in driving quality content, citations and rankings, whilst your editorial team will retain complete independence over content decisions. SAGE has a proven track record in gaining Impact Factors for journals and increasing their rankings. SAGE recruits and retains passionate and experienced publishing staff, and the high quality of the published journal, whether in print or online, is fundamental to SAGE.
