In Open Access week, what have we learned so far about open access publishing in the social sciences?

I was at the University of Sussex on Wednesday, along with two other colleagues, Dave Ross and Lucy Robinson, who had kindly agreed to speak about SAGE’s experiences in open access publishing. As part of Open Access week, we had agreed to meet with students at the University of Sussex to discuss our open access publication, SAGE Open, which launched this spring. We have had some 600 submissions to the journal since we first announced it late last year. So far, 25 articles have published. Dave and Lucy talked to the students about the findings of the SOAP project, why SAGE set up SAGE Open, and shared some initial responses to the new journal. An edited audio recording of the presentation (cutting out the questions, which were unfortunately a bit quiet) is available, along with the slides from the presentation:
