While SAGE Journals Online is an e-delivery platform that allows subscribing institutions to access individual SAGE journal titles, SAGE Full-Text Collections are full-text research databases in specific disciplines that include up to 22 years of backfiles and are enhanced by linking to and from popular CSA abstracting databases on the IDS platform. They are sold through CSA.
