The global Covid-19 pandemic has increased demand for secure remote access solutions such as OpenAthens. It has also embedded the need for a remote access solution in the long-term as users increasingly want to access content from any device, any place, anywhere.

Some things we can help you with:

  • Evidence-based decisions for budget allocation using our usage reporting tool

Critical Conversations Partner and Inclusivity Partner

SAGE is a global academic publisher of books, journals, and a growing suite of library products and services.

Driven by the belief that social and behavioural science has the power to improve society, we focus on publishing impactful research and enabling robust research methodology. We produce high quality educational resources that support instructors to prepare the citizens, policy makers, educators and researchers of the future. We publish more than 1,000 journals and 900 new books globally each year, as well as library products and services that include archives, data, case studies and video. SAGE is majority owned by our founder, Sara Miller McCune, and after her lifetime will become owned by a charitable trust that secures the company’s continued independence.

Our mission is building bridges to knowledge — supporting the development of ideas through the research process to scholarship that is certified, taught, and applied.

At SAGE, we are committed to building an inclusive organization where all individuals are treated with fairness and respect, regardless of age, ability, gender, marriage and partnership status, pregnancy and parental responsibilities, race, religion and belief, socio-economic background, or sexual orientation.

Diversity is one of the cornerstones of a vibrant culture and we are undertaking work to build a SAGE that is more equitable and representative of the communities we serve and of which we are part.
