Welcome to our Virtual Publisher Trade Show Event.
Feel free to post here any SAS related questions or comments for Diane or Ken. If you are experiencing any technical difficulties feel free to phone me at 646-645 3200 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for providing this opportunity Dr. Sherman! I have many questions for SAS and would love to know who to contact outside of this Trade Show. It is difficult to get information other than the Chair refresher workshops--which are terrific by the way! I need some simple instructions on how to proceed as a first time chair. I have two students I want to work with. Thanks so much for any information you can provide!
I have not published with SAGE Open, but their site states, "Authors who do not have the means to cover the publication fee may request a waiver after acceptance." Would you mind providing some of the horrible experience? While I have not published in a journal that requires a fee, I have entertained doing so.

After attending the SIOP conference, Dr. Rouse and I received an invitation to publish one of our papers in Psychology Research (David Publishing Company). We were planning on submitting to Teaching of Psychology, but thought that we might explore an open access journal, for wider distribution. We checked the publisher website and the journal seemed credible and was peer reviewed. We submitted the article and within very few days (2 I think) our article was accepted. This seemed strange, so Dr. Rouse engaged in conversation with them, asking to see the reviewer's feedback, etc. They would not share it with us, stating we would see the editor's comments when the article went to publication (or some comment like that0. Also, the phone number provided did not seem to be a business number. To make a long story short, we withdrew our paper and they said they would waive the fee (it was like $800) if that was the issue. That made us even more hesitant. We also found the information below from the Chronicle.
Ken, Diane, are we going to be able to save this link and go back to it other times? Or is it just alive for today and yesterday. I couldnt get into this until this evening and I really wanted more to time to read and ask questions. What does Membership mean?
