SAGE Publications, Ltd. and Hindawi Publishing Corp. Tuesday toasted the launch of their joint initiative to launch and publish a collection of open access (OA) journals.
David Ross, business development manager at SAGE, says the company is “glad about the new initiative and its momentum to drive the whole movement forward and develop the community.” He sees this as just the first phase for both companies to continue collaborative efforts in the OA publishing arena. SAGE, the world’s fifth-largest journal publisher with more than 485 journals in the humanities, social sciences, science, technology, and medicine; Hindawi now publishes more than 100 OA journals in science, technology, and medicine.
As the publishing venture moves forward, SAGE will be responsible for the editorial development, marketing, and promotion of the new journals, while Hindawi will provide the technology and expertise to run the publication process. Under the model, all SAGE-Hindawi journal articles will be made freely available online via the Hindawi platform, funded by author charges.
