Alumni Access

University alumni may have access to the content hosted on the SAGE Journals, SAGE Research Methods (excluding Video collections), and SAGE Knowledge platforms (excluding SAGE Video) platforms through their university library, based on their university's current and active holdings. All alumni registered with subscribing or purchasing libraries will be able to access the above SAGE products, including more than 1,000 scholarly and professional journals at no extra fee.

University libraries already support current students and scholars with access to online resources through both on-site and remote services. This license extends this offering to alumni via IP address, ATHENS, or SHIBBOLETH through the institution’s account. SAGE does not have the information or systems necessary to authenticate an individual as being an alumnus of a particular institution. Because of this, institutions will need to manage the authentication process and provide alumni with a route through the institutional IP network or with an ATHENS or SHIBBOLETH profile.
