SAGE acquires the Royal Society of Medicine’s journal portfolio

    We are delighted to announce that SAGE has signed an agreement with the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) to take over immediate publication of their RSM Journals portfolio, consisting of 28 titles within the medical field.

    The Royal Society of Medicine is one of the UK’s major providers of postgraduate medical education for doctors, dentists, students and the allied health professions from around the world.  As part of this agreement we are thrilled to be publishing the RSM’s own journals including the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine,  a highly prestigious title, one of the few general medical journals in existence, with a publishing history spanning over 200 years.

    The RSM journals portfolio publishes articles on primary research and clinical practice across a broad range of disciplines, including infectious disease, health practice, women’s health and vascular medicine.  As part of this agreement, we will be partnering with some of the world’s most renowned medical organisations including the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine.

    We are incredibly excited about this acquisition: we have consistently grown our publishing in medicine for over a decade, through purchasing and launching titles – notably the Therapeutic Advances series – along with many society partnerships. These journals are closely aligned with our existing clinical medicine and broader health management portfolio, providing an even wider range of research and publication opportunities for our authors.

    Speaking about the acquisition Ziyad Marar, Global Publishing Director SAGE, commented; “After a decade of growth across clinical medicine, this agreement marks SAGE out as a major medical publisher. The confidence of the Royal Society of Medicine in entrusting SAGE with the development of their own journals as well as several society relationships recognises SAGE’s strengths as a collaborative publishing partner, one that is aligned with the goals of scholarship and education, and able to combine the reach of a larger publisher with the care and personal approach of a smaller press.”

    Tessa Picknett, Executive Director for STM journals added: “We are thrilled to welcome these journals to SAGE. They represent some of the very best medical research internationally, and through the publication of valuable original research and opinion pieces, help to support the improvement of human health globally”
