EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) has renewed its agreement with SAGE Publishing which guarantees waived Article Processing Charges for  authors from Kenya when publishing an article in a SAGE fully Open Access journal. This means no article processing charge will be required once a manuscript has been accepted for publication. 

The agreement runs until 2023, and the offer is available to authors publishing in any of 180 SAGE fully open access journals.

Important notes:

  • SAGE will automatically waive all Article Processing Charges in the payment system - no need to enter a discount code.  
  • Discounts apply to fully open access journals only (Gold open access), not open access articles published within a hybrid journal. Exception: The Journal of International Medical Research is excluded from the offer. The publisher may exclude other journals.
