Academic publisher SAGE has announced that it has become a Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks Certified content partner. KnowledgeWorks Certified is a new publisher certification program that helps Serials Solutions to maintain the highest quality bibliographic metadata for e-resources. With this move, the publisher seeks to ensure that bibliographic data relating to SAGE journals and SAGE journal packages are as accurate and up-to-date as possible in the Serial Solutions KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase.

Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks enables librarians to manage their constantly changing electronic collections and present reliable access to library patrons. This knowledgebase holds bibliographic metadata on a vast range of e-resources and is a primary component of Serials Solutions' 360 e-resource access and management services.

SAGE delivers fresh data each month to Serials Solutions to enable KnowledgeWorks to be as up-to-date as possible for the benefit of SAGE and Serials Solutions' shared library users globally. Serials Solutions has also provided SAGE with access, enabling SAGE to verify that its metadata is accurately represented in KnowledgeWorks.

SAGE and Serials Solutions are members of the KBART (Knowledge Bases and Related Tools) working group which is a joint initiative of UKSG and NISO set up to improve the flow of information in the knowledgebase supply chain.
