Subject: Sage Journals in EBSCOhost Databases 

Dear EBSCOhost Customers:

After communication with representative customers and at the request of
Sage, we are pleased to inform you that we will be adding the Sage
content, which was removed in July 2002, back to Academic Search Elite
within the next few weeks.  This content will be available on the product
through the end of the calendar year and will then be removed at that
time.

Our contract with Sage allows us to include Sage content in EBSCOhost´┐Ż
Research Databases in 2003 for customers whose subscriptions started in
2002.  However, we would need to create a second set of products that do
not include Sage content to fulfill subscriptions starting in 2003.  
Rather than increasing production costs and adding confusion by creating a
second version of each of our many products during 2003 in order to
provide Sage full text to a subset of our customers, we have made the
decision to implement what we feel is a more practical solution of
replacing Sage journals with journals of appropriate quality in the
databases in 2003.  The additional titles added to Academic Search Elite
in July 2002 (as replacements for Sage titles), will remain in the
product.

While no full text content from Sage owned journals will appear in any
EBSCOhost Research Databases in 2003, we are pleased to announce that
EBSCO plans to continue to provide abstracting and indexing for all Sage
journals currently included in EBSCO databases.

Kind regards,

Scott Bernier
Communications Manager
