The University of California has entered into a three-year transformative open access agreement with SAGE Publishing, effective from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024. The agreement includes open access publishing of an unlimited number of articles by corresponding authors at all ten UC campuses and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and provides researchers throughout the UC system with expanded reading access to the full portfolio of SAGE journals.
The goal of the agreement is to support UC’s mission as a public university and advance the global shift toward sustainable open access publishing by making more UC-authored research articles open to the world, while containing the university’s journal-related expenditures. Consistent with UC’s other transformative agreements, the UC libraries are redirecting subscription funds to help cover open access publishing fees for UC authors who publish in SAGE journals.
