Become a Guest Editor in an Open Access Journal

SAGE welcomes proposals for new Special Collections in our Gold Open Access journals.

Special Collections are intended to attract high quality articles on topics of current interest in the field of the journal. They should be organized by Guest Editors who are recognized experts in their field.

It is helpful for Guest Editors to have a list of potential contributors already in mind, and reach out to them as soon as possible.

Increasing Citations and Improving Your Impact Factor

What You Can Do to Increase Citations and Improve Your Impact Factor

Quantitative metrics are important in the evaluation of scholarly research as universities, governments, and funding bodies try to find ways to make their hiring, funding, and investment decisions based on measurable criteria. This has had a significant effect on journals publishing, with the well-known Impact Factor functioning as a ready-made, albeit controversial, indicator of the quality and significance of a published piece of work.


As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE has become a supporting member of ORCID®, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID.
