Hunt Valley, MD — Sheridan has been selected as the primary production and publication management service for SAGE journals. SAGE Publishing, headquartered in Thousand Oaks, CA, is the world’s 5th largest journals publisher with leading journals in the Humanities, Social Sciences and STM disciplines.
Among the services Sheridan will be piloting for the SAGE journals is Sheridan’s front-end author editing system, ArticleExpress™ which offers tools to greatly enhance the author experience and help position SAGE as a publisher of choice now, and well into the future.
In addition to ArticleExpress™, SAGE is utilizing Sheridan’s custom journal support services, including Library of Congress issues copyright filing, Sheridan’s superior back issue fulfillment & warehouse services, returns processing, co-mailing, subscriber services, commercial article reprints and eprints, and offset (sheet fed and web), digital toner, digital inkjet and POD print platforms.
Mark Levenson, SAGE Publishing Production Operations Manager, spoke about SAGE’s decision to select Sheridan, “SAGE Publishing has a long and successful partnership with Sheridan; advances in print and non-print technologies have helped SAGE and Sheridan to grow together over the years. The Sheridan sales, customer service, prepress, press, and post press departments all take responsibility for most SAGE Journals content in producing and delivering ink on paper and digital products. The transition of additional SAGE Publishing titles to Sheridan has been completely seamless. It is a tribute to Sheridan’s partnership with SAGE in the ‘production and distribution of knowledge’ through print and electronic media. I am confident in Sheridan’s workforce, facilities, and their vision for the future.”
Paul Bozuwa, Sheridan Chief Sales Officer commented, “Sheridan is proud to be SAGE Publishing’s primary production partner for journals. SAGE’s decision to further align with Sheridan confirms the importance of our continued investment in technologies, workflows and print platforms for journals, and our ongoing commitment to the scholarly journal publishing market.”
