8-10 percent discount - kudos!

Congratulations to SAGE for showing some real leadership in 
moving to e-only - AND, lowering prices!

Q. Is there a discount offered on an e-access subscription rate?
A. Yes, SAGE offers an 8% discount off the Print-only rate and a 
10% discount off the Combined (Print & E-access) rate.

>From the SAGE press release, as reported on Liblicense: 

Note:  print costs are at least 20-30% of total publishing costs. 
The SAGE discount is most welcome news and definitely a step in 
the right direction - but a leadership position in appropriately 
discounting with a move to e-only is still very much open.
