Los Angeles, CA (June 18, 2010) Leading academic and professional publisher SAGE today announced the launch of a new online resource that will put the spotlight on research published across its scholarly journals.
SAGE Insight (http://www.sagepub.com/sageinsight) links to highly topical articles from across the 560 journals hosted online on SAGE's online platform, SAGE Journals Online. Drawn from both new and archive content, the articles on SAGE Insight provide a fresh perspective on major issues facing the public and policy makers.
"SAGE Insight provides content that will inform both public discussion and policy making, covering everything from crime to medical practices, from psychology to education," said Clive Parry, Global Marketing Director, SAGE.
The articles selected will demonstrate the role of academic research in the understanding of society and human behaviour, and show how academic research is relevant to both public discussion and policy making. Each post will link to a free research article on SAGE Journals Online to enable readers to access the research directly. The posts will also appear via a Twitter account (http://www.twitter.com/SAGE_insight)
"SAGE Insight provides our journal authors with a new channel to reach out to media, bloggers, policymakers and the general reader." added Parry. "Initially, content for the site will be selected by our team internally, but our aim is that our authors will direct us to relevant articles that will inform and engage public debate."
Authors contributing to SAGE Journals are encouraged to suggest their articles for inclusion on the blog by filling out a 'suggest your article' form.
