The SAGE Choice program offers authors the option to make their articles freely available upon publication in most subscription-based SAGE Journals. It also enables authors to comply with funding body requirements, where publishing research papers open access is a stipulation of funding, while still publishing their article in the subscription journal of their choice.
Most SAGE journals offer SAGE Choice. The standard article processing charge (APC) for SAGE Choice is 3,000 USD/1,600 GBP. The fee excludes any other potential author fees levied by some journals (such as color charges) as well as taxes where applicable.

If published in an issue: the article cannot be modified, but an erratum or corrigendum can be published to clarify the error. Errata and corrigenda are good choices for serious errors (such as a misspelled author name, or incorrect data that could cause harm) because they create greater awareness of the error and are effectively downstreamed to indexers like PubMed. But these error notices carry unfavorable connotations and can also negatively affect Impact Factor, so we recommend using them sparingly.
If published OnlineFirst, but not yet in an issue: the article can potentially be modified. Contact your PE as soon as you notice the error and they can advise you.
Modifying the article as a new version at OnlineFirst or issue is a good choice for less serious errors. But “versioning” can raise questions such as “Which version was intended in citation?” and “What changed between the versions and why?” Also, SAGE cannot control whether downstream sources, such as PubMed, accept the modifications. The benefit of an error’s correction should be carefully considered against the potential disadvantages of post-publication corrections. Please contact your PE for additional advice about errors and corrections.
