Sage - discount for UH researchers

 

 

SAGE Premier

The researchers at the University of Helsinki get a discount from the APC payment when publishing their article open in the hybrid journals (Sage Choice Titles) as a corresponding author. The discount includes following journals: Sage´s journals with the discount

Instructions for open access publishing in SAGE´s journals:

1) SAGE sends to a corresponding author the acceptance of the article and informs author about the possibility to publish the article Open Access.

2) The writer fills in the SAGE's Open Access form and uses the Promo Code: "FinELib 2017".

3) SAGE bills the 200 GBP APC payment from the corresponding writer.

When the article has been accepted, the writer him/herself has to add to the information code: FinELib2017, which entitles to the discount.

Researchers themselves also have to make sure that the billing is performed correctly with the discount APC payment (200 GBP). It is important that the writer of the article takes care of getting the discount, because the publisher is not responsible for the matter afterwards.
