360 KB: Selected SAGE Publications Journals Collections Unable to Update - July 2017

What is happening with the updates for the SAGE Publications Journals Collections?

Recent KBART title lists provided by SAGE Publications for many of their SAGE Journals collections have had issues that have required us to reach out to the provider to raise awareness, and to work with them to address the issues encountered.   Until we’re able to fully address the issues encountered, we have elected to not update these collections in order to prevent degradation in metadata quality for the impacted collections.  The spreadsheet below lists the collections impacted as of July 2017.


We are working closely with SAGE Publications to address these issues in order to provide libraries with accurate and up-to-data collection information and metadata.

In the meantime, we recommend as an alternative to track any purchased titles through the three SAGE Complete A-Z List collections listed below in order to continue having access and updates.  The below collections will continue to be updated on a regular basis.

  • SAGE Complete A-Z List (DBID: SFC)
  • SAGE Complete A-Z List (Through 1998) (DBID: Q1R)
  • SAGE Complete A-Z List (1999-Present) (DBID: J8X)

We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working diligently with SAGE to address these issues as quickly as possible.  Please continue to watch this article for updates as they become available.
