History[edit]
**Sara Miller McCune** is executive chairman of SAGE Publications, which
she founded in 1965 in New York City.[7] 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).[8]
OASPA membership[edit]
SAGE Publishing was a founding member of the Open Access Scholarly
Publishers Association (OASPA) when it was established in 2008.[9] 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?).[10] SAGE's
membership was reinstated at the end of the six month review period
following changes to the journal's editorial processes.[11]
