Deal Will Lead to More Open-Access Journals

November 21, 2007

Sage, with more than 485 titles and the world’s fifth-largest publisher of academic journals, announced on Tuesday that it would join with the Hindawi Publishing Corporation to produce a suite of fully open-access journals. Hindawi already publishes more than 100 such journals, in science, technology, and medicine.

In the partnership, Sage will be responsible for the editorial development, marketing, and promotion of the new journals. Hindawi will oversee submissions, the peer-review process, and final publication. Articles will be freely available online, and authors will be charged for publication. —Andrea L. Foster
