Sara Miller McCune and George McCune established SAGE on the premise that publishing thoughtful scholarship could change the way we look at our world. In 1965, SAGE launched its first publication, “Urban Affairs Quarterly,” a journal that the company still publishes. From this modest beginning to the remarkable accomplishments of today, SAGE has always been guided by a pioneering vision and the ability to respond to new opportunities and challenges. Mrs. McCune continues as the company’s Chairman to this day.
SAGE is now an international publisher, with more than 700 employees publishing books, journals, and electronic media that disseminate knowledge throughout the world. SAGE is a leader in educational publishing, consistently at the forefront of interdisciplinary and international scholarly thought. SAGE has its headquarters in Los Angeles, with additional offices in London, New Delhi and Singapore.
SAGE is rapidly growing; not only in terms of increasing year on year revenues and profits but also through investment in people, new technologies, acquisitions and the exciting prospect of increasing further our presence in Asia, with offices in Delhi and Singapore. Our financial stability with consistent sustained profits is at the heart of this expansion and we anticipate continued success.
