SAGE Publications

December 2016: Sage is in the process of migrating to a new platform. The new site’s URL patterns are much simpler, and ultimately will eliminate the need for the lengthy sage.txt IncludeFile.

At your earliest convenience, please add the new stanza below the current one (either the IncludeFile line or your local Sage stanza):

HTTPHeader X-Requested-With
Title Sage Journals
URL http://journals.sagepub.com
HJ https://journals.sagepub.com
HJ businessresearcher.sagepub.com
HJ www.sagepub.co.uk
HJ data.sagepub.com
HJ sk.sagepub.com
HJ library.cqpress.com
HJ uk.sagepub.com
HJ methods.sagepub.com
HJ brightcove.com
DJ sagepub.com
DJ sagepub.co.uk
DJ cqpress.com

Find url = "http://
Replace url = "http://^A
Find "google-analytics.com
Replace "^pgoogle-analytics.com^
Find url = document.location.protocol + "//" + document.location.host
Replace url = "http://journals.sagepub.com/"

Sage has requested that libraries not begin updating their Starting Point URLs until Tuesday December 6. Permanent redirects will be in place from the old URLs (e.g. aaf.sagepub.com) to the new platform to assure continued access during the transition period.

The previous stanza information for Sage Publications is below.

A configuration file for SAGE Publications that includes all of the SAGE journal hostnames is available for download.

Once downloaded, save this file in your EZproxy directory and include the following line as the last line in your EZproxy config.txt:

IncludeFile sage.txt

Whenever you download a new version of the sage.txt file and replace the old file in your EZproxy directory, make sure to restart your EZproxy server for the changes to take effect.

MaxVirtualHosts

Sage uses nearly 2,000 unique hostnames. For many EZproxy installations, this can cause EZproxy to reach its MaxVirtualHosts limit. When applying the Sage definition, you should also review: MaxVirtualHosts and in the section on correcting issues, you should follow the instructions with the exception of raising the limit by 5,000 instead of the recommended 100.
