Sara Miller McCune is executive chairman of SAGE Publications, which she founded in 1965 in New York City. The company moved to Southern California in 1966. McCune remained president for 18 years and became chairman in 1984, developing the company with her husband George D. McCune. The name of the company was derived from their respective given names (SAra and GEorge).
SAGE Publishing was a founding member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) when it was established in 2008. In November 2013, OASPA reviewed SAGE's membership after the Journal of International Medical Research published a false and intentionally flawed paper created and submitted by a reporter for Science as part of a "sting " to test the effectiveness of the peer-review processes of open access journals (see Who\'s Afraid of Peer Review? ). SAGE's membership was reinstated at the end of the six month review period following changes to the journal's editorial processes.
