Supporting your institution’s mission through open access

There are numerous benefits of open access publishing for researchers and for society. Many of these will also help to achieve the objectives of your own institution, including:

  • Advancing knowledge

  • Ensuring researchers get credit for their work

  • Providing learning opportunities for all

  • Supporting the real-world impact of research

These benefits are why universities and research organizations are investing more resources to help their researchers publish open access. If it’s also one of your priorities, then we’d love to work with you.

Open access agreements for your institution

Taylor & Francis partners with institutions and funders around the world to help researchers publish gold open access in their chosen journals. These open access publishing agreements allow researchers to benefit from discounted article publishing charges or to publish open access at no cost to themselves.

The needs of institutions vary, so there is no single solution to achieving your open access goals. Our team can work with you to find the right choice for you. This may include:

Transformative agreements

Sometimes known as ‘read & publish’, a transformative agreement is where an increasing proportion of your library spend supports open access publishing services. All whilst enabling your users to continue to read subscription content.

OA memberships

These agreements, which are now available for both books and journals, allow you to support researchers to cover the costs of open access. Members also benefit from discounts on article and book publishing charges.
