SAGE offer discounted OA Fee of £200 to authors at Bangor University

SAGE is committed to the principle of not double charging for paid-for Open Access content in hybrid journals.  As of 2012, the proportion of paid OA articles in hybrid is very low and offering author discounted fees is the most efficient way of achieving this aim.  Once OA articles reach a significant proportion of content, SAGE will switch from offering author discounts, to moderating the journal’s pricing.
The process for claiming your discount is as follows:
  • Submitting authors are alerted to the fact that the SAGE Choice option exists for a title either when they are sent an acceptance email or when they are sent the Contributors Agreement to authorise.
  • Follow the link provided by either of these forms to be sent a SAGE Choice Invoice Template
  • Enter the discount code INDNESLi into the “University/Institution Account Code” field of the SAGE Choice Invoice Template and return to the relevant email address at SAGE as instructed on the form.
  • An invoice for the discounted rate of £200 will be raised.
Please note: SAGE are able to offer a retrospective conversion to OA of previously published articles.  The process of submission is the same as above, but due to extra administration and technical costs in managing retrospective conversion, the charge for this is £400.
