So this is something new that Sage is trying, providing authors with links to PDFs of their articles that can be share (although you still can’t print or download the article). I guess it is a last ditch effort these closed access journals (and publishers) are making to try to hang on to the free revenue source that they have generated from academic servitude.
Anyway, this is an article related to teacher education and K-12 online and blended learning that I co-authored with one of my former doctoral students.
