SAGE today announced that all three of their latest open access journals are now open for submissions – SAGE Open Medicine, SAGE Open Medical Case Reports and SAGE Open Engineering.
All three titles complement SAGE's rapidly expanding portfolio of over 200 titles in engineering, health and medicine, providing an even wider choice of publication opportunities for authors:
The titles are rigorously peer-reviewed by experts in the relevant fields and will not limit content due to page budgets or narrow thematic focus. Rather, they will accept articles on the basis of the scientific and methodological validity of each article. The journals will be supported by author-side article processing charges. All three journals will offer a discounted Author Processing Fee for a limited introductory period.
The new journals build on the success of SAGE Open, the only broad-spectrum open access journal for the humanities and social sciences. Launched in May 2011 as SAGE's premiere open access journal, it has recently published its 100th article and been honoured with an Annual Award for Publication Excellence (APEX) in the category of New Magazines & Journals.
Tessa Picknett, Executive Director, SAGE said: "We recognise and embrace the variety of new models for scholarly communication that are emerging, and are keen to offer a range of options to researchers and practitioners in the science, technology and medical disciplines. We have been really excited by the powerful endorsement of a broad range of communities in setting up these journals, many of whom have volunteered to play an active role in their development and the maintenance of high levels of service to authors. We very much look forward to seeing them grow and flourish."
