SAGE Publishing is a leading social science publisher. While we have extensive coverage of multi-volume references, manuals, student references, supplements, monographs, and higher-level textbooks, our focus is on basic introductory textbooks. Our investment in Editorial, Marketing and Sales aims to increase our list of textbooks.


Mainly in the traditionally stronger areas of SAGE: Research Methods, Business and Administration, Psychology, but also in areas newer to us: such as Nursing. Our education roster remains a key area for us, and therefore is focused on textbooks, but with a strong arm of professional and teacher resources. We also have the leading advisory list, with a professional market that predominantly buys online.
