Current Free online access to SAGE journals

Rush-tell your friends and colleagues and even your enemies and hopefully you may see each other in a new light.

"-as true human beings - mutual friends - with similar hopes and aspirations:

lets work intelligently for "our common good" on one earth -one we have inherited for many many years and hopefully for many more years to come, for our and our childrens benefit. "

["SAGE, publishing wish to bring their current free access period. You can now register for free online access to over 500 SAGE journals with content available from 1999–current, until October 31, 2008!] Unfortuneately one of the rare good things in 2008 has long ended.

Earlier this year, SAGE celebrated the launch of the 500th journal site on the SAGE Journals Online platform. SAGE Journals Online provides users access to one of the largest collections of social science, humanities, and scientific, technical, and medical content in the world."

NB. Sage translates well in French. It means Wise. I'll avoid puns which come to mind!

Foresight - Free Manual - Prospective -Links List

To make life easier for readers, I have just recorded a reference Foresight-Prospective Studies Manual "From Anticipation to Action"-Pdf,together with numerous links (23 links) from the same good French source good French source on these subjects. Off-the-cuff, I can think of a few others such as "Santa Fe Institute", "Sierra Club", Aspen Institute...OCDE too I suppose, and will come back to this in "Future" "Think-Tank" posts. New comers are well advised to read (multi-lingual introductory materials, English of course, Spanish & French.) before using previously mentioned "sledgehammer free software tools". The French Expert central to these references is Michel Godet Professor of Prospective Studies at ENSAM - CNAM, whose abundant freely available work is mostly in French.
