SAGE Publishing is an independent publishing company founded in 1965 in New York by Sara Miller McCune. SAGE has more than 1,500 employees from principal offices in Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore, and Washington DC. SAGE's publishing program includes more than 1,000 journals and 800 books a year,[1] reference works and electronic products covering business, humanities, social sciences, science, technology and medicine.

SAGE also owns and publishes under four imprints: Corwin Press[2] (since 1990), CQ Press[3] (since 2008), Learning Matters[4] (since 2011), and Adam Matthew Digital (since 2012).[5]

In 2012, SAGE was named the Independent Publishers Guild Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year.[6]


Sara Miller McCune is executive chairman of SAGE Publications, which she founded in 1965 in New York City to support the dissemination of usable knowledge and educate a global community. The company moved to Southern California in 1966. McCune remained president for 18 years and became chairman in 1984, developing the company with her husband George D. McCune. The name of the company was derived from their respective given names (SAra and GEorge).[7]

OASPA membership

SAGE Publishing was a founding member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) when it was established in 2008.[8]

However in November 2013, OASPA reviewed SAGE's membership after the Journal of International Medical Research published a false and intentionally flawed paper created and submitted by a reporter for Science as part of a "sting" to test the effectiveness of the peer-review processes of open access journals (see Who's Afraid of Peer Review?).[9] SAGE's membership was reinstated at the end of the six month review period following changes to the journal's editorial processes.[10]
