Welcome to Advance: Sage's community to publish preprints and forum for academics to get feedback on research prior to publication.
Advance allows researchers within the fields of humanities and social sciences to post their work online and free of charge. Advance welcomes a variety of preprint types, including, but not limited to, original research, literature reviews, commentaries, and case studies. Once accepted, each preprint will be freely available online to the research community and peers and will benefit from our monitored commenting feature.
Peer review is "a process where scientists (aka peers) evaluate the quality of other scientists’ work. By doing this, they aim to ensure the work is rigorous, coherent, uses past research and adds to what we already know." You can learn more in this explainer from the Social Science Space.
Peer review brings academic research to publication in the following ways:
