The CDL is pleased to announce that after three years of active negotiation the UC community finally has access to the award-winning SAGE journals. Until recently, SAGE was not willing to license to consortia.

Sage journals cover a diverse range of subject areas including aging and gerontology, area and ethnic studies, cultural studies, counseling, geography, political science, sociology, research methods, arts, communication studies, materials science, engineering, theology, economics, criminology, and health sciences across the disciplines of social sciences, area and ethnic studies, humanities, and life sciences.

More than 220 of the journals are available on CSA in 10 subject-based Full-Text Collections, which provide access to backfiles as far back as 36 years. Sage Full Text Collections include Communication Studies, Criminology, Education, Management & Organization Studies, Materials Science, Nursing & Health, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Urban Studies & Planning.

The CSA full text collections include more than 80,000 articles, book reviews, and editorials, with all the original graphics, tables, and page numbers.

The Sage Full-Text Collections are integrated into CSA’s Illumina interface, which allows users to search across all of the Sage full-text content and citations as well as the CSA abstract indexes such as Communication Abstracts, ERIC, PAIS International, PsycInfo, Sociological Abstracts, and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts.

An additional 140 titles in social sciences, humanities, and life sciences not included in the CSA collections are available on Highwire as SAGE Journals Online (PLUS titles). A total of 343 Sage journals from 1999 to date are available on Highwire. The SAGE license also includes all new titles published during the three-year contract period, a shared print archive beginning with January 2005 issues and perpetual rights beginning in 1999 and continuing forward.
