The UK Universities sector is currently working towards negotiating an agreement with the publisher SAGE. The previous contract ended in December 2022 and no new deal has been established. JISC and UK Higher Education institutions are working to negotiate a new agreement with SAGE, which will help our authors publish Open Access research outputs. The agreement will also support our staff and students in accessing SAGE’s content, as these agreements support both the reading and publishing of research.

The aim of this new agreement will be to: 

  • Ensure affordability with regards to costs for accessing and publishing content 
  • Allow eligible authors the option of immediate Open Access publishing 
  • Support compliance with funder Open Access requirements 
  • Help the University of Worcester to support Open Access research 

For more information on Read & Publish agreements, please see our information on open access and the REF.
