SAGE Publications goes ROMEO Green

Thousand Oaks, California, and London, United Kingdom (5 October 2004) -
SAGE Publications is pleased to announce its improved author
self-archiving copyright policy as part of its ongoing commitment to
provide the highest standards of service and support to authors. This new
policy makes SAGE Publications a Green publisher according to the
SHERPA/ROMEO Publisher Copyright classification.

"As a leading publisher across many disciplines, we have always had a
mission to disseminate knowledge and to serve authors. While we have been
letting authors archive their own copy on request for some time, we have
now decided to make our policy more straightforward," said Anthony Ross,
Vice President, Content Management. "We will be encouraging authors who
archive their own copy to include a link to the published version of the
article as it appears on our new journal delivery platform: SAGE Journals

This improved policy comes into effect immediately and applies to all
journals where SAGE is responsible for author copyright policy. It allows
authors to self-archive their own copy pre-print (i.e. submitted), and
their own copy post-print (i.e. accepted for publication).

the SHERPA/ROMEO listings.

For additional information regarding this policy or other SAGE policy
statements, please contact Leo Walford (
