Why is independence important?

It means being free to do more: Championing new ideas that advance disciplines and drive social change. Free to work together: with librarians and faculty to transform teaching and advance knowledge. Free to think long term: Anticipating changing needs with future-facing products.

In 1965, a 24-year-old Sara Miller founded Sage with the belief that social science research can and must play an important role in shaping society. With $500 in start-up capital, a one-room office in New York City, and the mentorship of her future husband George McCune, Sara started the company’s first journal—the first of what now numbers more than 1000.

Sage is known for its commitment to the social sciences: the Little Green Book Series; an expansive reference collection; research methods journals, videos, and texts; and content emphasizing critical thinking, data analysis, and computational tools are all published with the aim of training current and future social scientists.
