What are the authentication options for Taylor & Francis Online?

The information on Taylor & Francis Online details the many ways you can help library users to access journal content whether you’re on or off campus:

  • Institutional IP ranges: Allows authorized users to access Taylor & Francis content via their institution’s IP address.
  • Proxy access: Allows library users access via VPN or Proxy Server to enter the institution’s IP range.
  • Institutional access using an individual login: This feature is available to all your users and doesn’t require any set up by the account administrator. Library users are able to get remote access to their institution’s subscriptions by signing into their individual Taylor & Francis Online account. When users login to Taylor & Francis Online when connected to their campus network, their profile will automatically affiliate with their institution, and they will be able to access the institution’s licensed content by logging in to Taylor & Francis Online for 90 days from any location and on any device.
  • SAML solutions: We work with both OpenAthens and Shibboleth Federations around the world to provide access via SAML. If your institution has registered with one of these authentication services, library users can access content without being connected to their campus network.
  • Google CASA: When a user is connected to their institution’s network, either on campus or via a VPN, if they visit Google Scholar Google automatically creates an affiliation between that user and their institution.
  • Society member access: Many of our partner societies and associations offer online journal access as part of their membership benefits. Researchers should contact their society for more details.
