Dear Heather, please note that SAGE's e-only offer is neither new nor does it mean that SAGE will actually lower prices for 2010 compared to 2009. To the contrary, SAGE journal prices increase by 4% on average, and typically 8% for journals with an increase in frequency or no. of issues published (e.g. Textile Research Journals). That said, this is of course better than the meager 5% discount offered now (after so many years with no e-only offer at all) finally by IOP Publishing, when AIP or APS are able to offer 20% reduction.
