SAGE Publishing Supports Educator Preparation Community During COVID-19

AACTE Responds to COVID-19

The response to COVID-19 has impacted virtually every industry in this unprecedented time, and the publishing industry is no exception. Here at SAGE Publishing, proud partner of AACTE and publisher of the Journal of Teacher Education, we’ve focused our response on supporting the higher education teaching and research communities we serve as we navigate this difficult time together.

We are committed to doing what we can to support the researchers, teachers, and students in our community. We know that the work of the research and teaching community will be critical to addressing the challenge of COVID-19, and we’re happy to share the resources we have with the readership of the Ed Prep Matters blog.

Actions we have taken include the following:

  • We have removed the subscription gateway to articles that we believe will be of value to researchers and practitioners at this time.
  • We have signed and committed to the Wellcome coordinated statement on Sharing research data and findings relevant to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
  • We have created and will maintain a micrositethat highlights both social and behavioral sciences and medical sciences research on COVID-19 and more broadly on managing pandemics. 
  • We have collated a collection of blog postson impacts for researchers, instructors, and the public in general on Social Science Space. 
  • We will prioritize publishing open access research relevant to the current pandemic and move it through production as fast as we can. 
  • We plan to further promote our free online SAGE Campus ‘How to Get Published’ course to support the global author community, many of whom are preparing articles for publication in remote and challenging circumstances.  
  • Corwin recently created a series of  resources for teachers including a newly created School Leaders Online ToolkitOnline Teaching Toolkit,and our Corwin Connect site; which school leaders are sharing widely with districts. Additionally, a video message was created as an expression of support for affected schools. 

We also know that teaching and other university services are being disrupted considerably by the pandemic and we are here to support teaching faculty and librarians through this transition. As many universities move to online teaching, we are making a range of articles available that give advice on how to teach online. We are also giving free access to some online teaching and research materials. Learn  more .

We welcome requests and suggestions from you about how SAGE can make your life easier at this time. Please email us at with ideas and follow us on social media at Twitter @SAGE_Publishing and Instagram @SAGE_Publishing  for updates on these initiatives.

We wish good health to everyone at this time
