SAGE Contributes Journals to Developing World Research Initiative

SAGE is delighted to announce the signing of an agreement with the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) for 2006. Under the terms of the agreement, SAGE will provide online access to more than 300 SAGE journals to research institutions in 66 of the world's less developed countries, either free of charge or for greatly subsidized rates.

This agreement was arranged via the Programme for the Enhancement of Research Information (PERI), an INASP initiative. This program supports capacity building in the research sector of developing countries by strengthening the production, access and dissemination of information and knowledge.

For a full list of countries whose researchers will benefit from this agreement with SAGE, see the INASP website at

???The objectives of the PERI program fit closely with SAGE's core company values, which aim to support the dissemination of teaching and research on a global scale,??? commented Stephen Barr, Managing Director of SAGE UK. ???We are delighted to have been invited to participate in this important program.???

SAGE Journal Receives Special Mention at the 2005 ALPSP Awards

The winners of this year's Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers ( ALPSP) and ALPSP/Charlesworth Awards were announced at the Association's annual dinner held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London on Thursday, September 15, 2005.

China Information, which was recently relaunched by SAGE, received special mention for the ALPSP/Charlesworth Award for Learned Journals. The journal was recognized for demonstrating a clear and attractive design.

The ALPSP/Charlesworth Award for Learned Journals is for outstanding journal design and is open to all publishers or journal owners worldwide. The panel received just over 20 applications in this category. Journals may be existing or relaunched but must be in printed form (with or without an electronic version) and consist primarily of peer-reviewed scholarly research articles. The judges considered the many aspects of a journal's design, including the cover, layout and typography together with the ease of use for readers and librarians and how well it serves its audience.

For more details, visit the ALPSP website.

"SAGE Spotlight"
New Feature of the SAGE Librarian Newsletter

The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science Celebrates Its 600th Volume

Since 1889, The American Academy of Political and Social Science has served as a forum for the free exchange of ideas among the well informed and intellectually curious. In this era of specialization, few scholarly periodicals cover the scope of societies and politics as does The Annals. Each volume presents more than 200 pages of timely, in-depth research on a significant topic of concern.

The 600th volume of The Annals, titled The Use and Usefulness of the Social Sciences: Achievements, Disappointments, and Promise and edited by Robert W. Pearson and Lawrence W. Sherman, chronicles the achievements, disappointments, and promise of the social sciences. Articles in the volume recount the conditions under which the social sciences have helped improve public policy or enlighten public discourse.
