Future Science Group platform migration library guide

In December 2023 biomedical publisher Future Science Group joined Taylor & Francis. We are delighted to welcome the addition of 32 peer-reviewed FSG journals, and are looking forward to supporting the authors, editors and readers of these titles. They complement the existing range of over 340 Taylor & Francis medical and healthcare journals.

Joining Taylor & Francis means that there will be changes in how customers access content for Future Science Group. The Future Medicine and Future Science platforms are closing on 24th May 2024. After this point, journals hosted on these platforms will have a new home at Taylor & Francis Online.
