Associations Now Access Leading Research Journals Through Community Brands Software

YourMembership becomes the first association management system to integrate digital content, journals and books from SAGE Publishing

July 2, 2019—ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.— Community Brands, the leading provider of cloud-based software and payment solutions for associations, nonprofits, schools and faith-based organizations, today announces the immediate availability of digital content, research journals and books from SAGE Publishing. The reference content is accessible through YourMembership, the company’s cloud-based association management solution (AMS) for small and mid-sized organizations.

The integrated research is part of a broad partnership between Community Brands and SAGE Publishing, a leading international publisher that releases more than 1,000 journals and over 800 new books each year. Organizations using YourMembership now access this content through new single sign-on capabilities. Members can easily transition from their association’s website, or their member profile, directly into the journals.

“This new content from SAGE is unique and exciting,” stated Melea Guilbault, SVP of Partnerships & Nonprofit Solutions. “Seamless and personalized experiences have become expected by members, and this new integration enables organizations to more easily put targeted, world-class research journals into the hands of members through YourMembership.”

The newly integrated publications help practitioners and members throughout the company’s association and nonprofit network. Readers of the content can stay ahead of technology trends, industry best practices and member engagement insights. The integration is an added convenience for associations, societies, chapters, nonprofits and association management companies (AMC) whose members also use the content for professional development and continuing education.

“We’re pleased to be partnering with Community Brands to provide our mutual society and association clients with a faster, streamlined login process to SAGE Journals,” shared Martha Sedgwick, Vice President of Product Innovation at SAGE. “Once set up, society members will be able to log directly into SAGE Journals thereby gaining easier access to our leading collection of academic and professional journals.”

YourMembership is the only AMS with this integration into SAGE Journals, a dynamic and world-class collection of research journals from SAGE Publishing. Learn more about Community Brands and its Association Solutions, Nonprofit Solutions, K-12 Solutions, and Faith-based Solutions.
