How do instructors set up an account? 

Materials on the instructor sites are only available to Faculty and Administrative Staff at Higher Education Institutions who are approved for SAGE Review Copies. If an instructor already has an existing SAGE account, the current user name and password will allow access to the Instructors’ site.  

To create an account, please click here. In order to be approved, you must provide your institution and the course that you are or will be teaching. Once you have created an account and you have been validated as a faculty member, you will have access to the instructor site.

Please note: Validation takes approximately 24-48 hours. 

How do students set up an account?

Most student study materials are free, open-access and do not require  registration. Once the student clicks on the hyperlink, the resources are available for use. ​

Select websites that contain premium resources and are bundled with a textbook are password protected. These websites require students to register for an account and redeem the access code that came with a standalone access card or textbook bundle. 

To create an account, please click here.

Is this compatible with my LMS?

They provide you with flexible, editable content in formats which import easily into most major learning management systems.
