Once your article is accepted , you will be prompted to sign a contributor publishing agreement and, once completed, your article will enter Production. Please note that Sage works with external vendors who will contact you to review your article proof. 

Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement

Sage requires the author as the rights holder to sign a Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement for all articles we publish. Sage’s Journal Contributor’s Publishing Agreement is a licence agreement under which the author retains copyright in the work but grant Sage the sole and exclusive right and licence to publish for the full legal term of copyright. Exceptions may exist where assignment of copyright is required or preferred by a proprietor other than Sage. In this case copyright in the work will be assigned from the author to the society.
