New open access publication from SAGE

We just learned about a new open access publication from the SAGE publishing company, called SAGE Open.

“SAGE Open publishes peer-reviewed, original research and review articles in an interactive, open-access format. With more than 400 manuscripts already submitted since January 1, 2011, articles span the full spectrum of the social and behavioral sciences and the humanities.” Learn more.

We’re excited to see the publishing world making a greater commitment to open access, and hope to see the trend continue. Open access refers to free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals (www.doaj.org/). It’s an especially important way to disseminate scholarly information, as fewer library budgets are able to cope with escalating journal costs.

Here’s a sampling of articles from the first issue of SAGE Open:

Happy reading!
