SAGE, the world’s fifth largest journals publisher, recently announced several new consortia agreements across Asia for 2008. After considerable growth in the region, SAGE’s e-content will now be available for subscription to member and affiliated institutions of the Japan Association of National University Libraries (JANUL), Private & Public University Libraries Consortia (PULC), Joint University Librarians Advisory Committee (JULAC), and the Korean Electronic Site License Initiative (KESLI).

‘Such rapid growth across the Asia market shows recognition of the value and relevance of the SAGE packages to the research community in Asia,’ said Steve Golden, MD of SAGE Asia-Pacific. ‘SAGE aims to be the natural home for authors, editors and societies, meaning we publish high quality content from the leading authors and leading journals in their fields. This, along with our growing reference collection, and our ability to provide easy, reliable access to this leading content, provides our customers with the leading content they need.’

SAGE opened its regional headquarters in Singapore last January, marking the company’s commitment to growth in the region. SAGE Singapore now employs staff based in Japan, China, Malaysia and Thailand, as well as managing a network of agents and representatives across Asia.
