SAGE has been part of the global academic community since 1965, supporting quality research that transforms society and our understanding of individuals, groups, and cultures. We passionately believe that publishing useful knowledge can create healthy minds and healthy cultures, in fact it is part of our vision to ensure that such research is widely disseminated around the world.
We’re also passionate about widening access to (and the public understanding of) research, especially social research. With that in mind, in June 2010 we launched SAGE Insight, and we are proud to announce that it has achievedan impressive 100,000 views. SAGE Insight puts the spotlight on topical and interesting journal research, new and archived published in our journals. The articles on SAGE Insight provide a fresh perspective on major issues facing the public and policy makers. We cover everything from crime to medical practices, from psychology to education. To date almost 400 posts have been published. The blog is available to everyone, globally. For the articles highlighted free access is made available to the full text.
