As part of SAGE Publishing’s commitment to ethical, transparent and fair peer review SAGE has signed the ORCID open letter along with other stakeholders. Committing to mandating ORCID in accordance with the best practice for publishers, this step ensures better recognition and accreditation for researchers as well as supporting author and researcher compliance with funding mandates.
Following two trial phases across 2017 and 2018, SAGE will require ORCID IDs from corresponding authors submitting across a large number of journals from winter 2018.
Miranda Nunhofer, Vice President HSS journals, commented:
“SAGE has been a longstanding supporter of ORCID, aligned in our values to provide better tools and services and create a better platform from which to recognise, reward and support authors in their research journey/ academic accreditation. We are delighted to now be able to roll this out to a wider journal base.”
