Sage has announced the purchase of Pion, an independent publisher of academic journals. The acquisition results in Pion’s entire publishing portfolio becoming a part of Sage’s journal program.

The portfolio comprises four journals from the ‘Environment and Planning’ series, as well as Perception and the open access i-Perception.

Stephen Barr, president of Sage International, said: 'Pion’s publishing portfolio represents exactly what SAGE has always aspired to publish: major journals at the cutting edge of the development of key fields. The companies say the Pion journals are a natural addition to Sage’s journal portfolio.

'We are delighted to be the new publisher of the Pion Journals program and we look forward to working with the esteemed editorial boards across this program.'
