Sage Choice and Premier

This agreement applies to articles at the point of acceptance for publication.

GCU Authors must indicate that they are entitled to the discounted rate of £200 by using a specific code when applying for the SAGE Choice option. If you do not know the code please email

The code must be entered in the University/Institution Account Code field of the SAGE Choice Invoice Template. This template should be returned to the relevant email address at SAGE as instructed on the form.

Please note that:

  • the £200 fee will not cover costs for any other potential author fees levied by some journals (such as colour charges, which are additional) as well as taxes where applicable
  • this discount cannot be applied retrospectively to fees already paid
