Kicking off Academic Book Week 2017, we’ve delved into SAGE Connection’s archives to take you on a journey of how the academic text has changed since we started SAGE Connection eight years ago. And what changes there have been, from challenging thoughts about their role, to how to write effectively, as well as the challenges of publishing academic titles in a digital world and the opportunities this presents for innovation and creativity.
