Publishing agreement: SAGE

Corresponding authors at Örebro University are eligible to publish open access at no cost in most of the publisher’s hybrid journals (SAGE Choice). The agreement also includes a 20% discount on publication charges in full open access journals (SAGE Open Access).

Publication charges are covered, or discounted, for articles accepted after January 1, 2020.

Author instructions

Please use your institutional email address (@oru.se) when submitting your article.

Upon acceptance of a manuscript you will receive an email from the publisher, informing you that the article may be published open access under the Swedish Bibsam agreement. Follow the instructions and proceed to the SAGE Open Access Portal, where the option to publish open access is preselected.

When choosing to publish open access, the CC BY license option will be preselected. Contact the publisher if you prefer another license option. Information on the various Creative Commons licenses is available on the National Library of Sweden’s web site.

Journals covered by the agreement

The publication charge is prepaid in full when publishing in SAGE’s hybrid journals. Most of the journals are part of this category. 12 hybrid journals are however excluded. Please refer to the publisher's web site for a list of the excluded journals  (“Journals that do not participate in SAGE Choice”).

The 20 % discount applies to the full open access journals.

Other charges

Other charges, for example color charges and page charges, are not covered by the agreement.
