Migrating from ingenta

SAGE Journals Online has now replaced ingenta and ingenta select as the primary electronic delivery medium of our journal titles. Naturally, you may still link to the full text of the journals you subscribe to via your chosen online intermediary, such as EBSCO EJS, SwetsWise Online, or OCLC FirstSearch ECO.

Two items now need your immediate attention.

Activation on SAGE Journals Online is at the account level and not at the title level so you only need to activate for each account and not for individual titles. Please note some customers may have more than one account with SAGE, so please ensure that you activate each of your accounts.
