SAGE Open Access Portal (SOAP)
Starting on January 1, 2021, all authors affiliated with CRKN institutions that are participating in the CRKN-SAGE Premier Open Access agreement will be able to publish articles in SAGE Choice journals under an open access license with no associated Article Processing Charge (APC).
SAGE Open Access Portal (SOAP) is a centralized portal that automates SAGE’s open access publication process. CRKN members participating in the CRKN-SAGE license are eligible to receive a 40% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC) on Gold Open Access journals. The following steps briefly outline the manuscript submission process. For more information, see the PDF documents in the “Related Documents” section below.
- Authors identify their institution affiliation upon manuscript submission.
- Authors are notified by email of article acceptance. They are also notified of their eligibility for the 40% APC discount.
- Within the SAGE Open Access Portal (SOAP), authors can accept or decline to publish their article open access.
- If an author declines to publish in open access, their article will be published via the subscription route.
- In the Portal, the author can select their copyright license and assign a payer (i.e. funding agency, institution, or a different bill payer), and make the APC payment.

Applying a Taylor & Francis APC discount
To take advantage of the discount on T&F Open Select journals, an author can submit an article and choose the open access publishing option. When the APC is generated, authors can select their institution from the drop-down menu, and the discount will be automatically applied. The author can select a Creative Commons license to sign once they accept the quote. Visit Taylor & Francis' website for further details on the process.
