Sage and CI Faculty talk Trends in Academic Publishing

CI Faculty Workshop
On April 3, Diane McDaniel, Associate Director of SAGE’s College Editorial Program, and Jim Gilden, Editor of SAGE Open Sales, led a workshop on trends in higher education publishing with CI faculty. From online universities to eBooks and interactive databases, the discussions gave publishers and faculty the opportunity to discuss how major transformations in academia are affecting their connected worlds. The group discussed trends that affect textbooks and the classroom such as the continuously-growing MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and new innovative resources such as SAGE’s MobileStudy, which puts supplemental textbook materials on students’ phones. Jim Gilden discussed the evolution of Open Access Journals, explaining the different OA models as well as SAGE’s own OA offerings.
