Open Access Books and Chapters

At Taylor and Francis we’ve been publishing open access journals since 2006, and in 2013 we complemented it with our open access book program. We publish books and chapters across all subjects covered by Routledge, CRC Press and our other imprints in the humanities, social sciences and behavioural sciences.

Open access book content benefits from:

  • Rigorous peer review
  • Creative Commons licensing options
  • Increased reach of researcher content
  • Being DRM Free
  • Guaranteed legacy preservation of scholarship as research is stored in archives at CLOCKSS and Portico
  • Thorough peer review and the same professional production process as our traditionally published titles.

It is our belief that the option to publish open access is available to as many researchers as possible. To help achieve this we offer waivers on the Book Publishing Charges (BPCs) normally required to publish in the Taylor & Francis open access books program to eligible researchers.

Open Access Publishing Options
Open Access Books

Enable researchers to make single- or co-authored books, edited collections and conference proceedings gold open access upon publication.

Open Access Chapters

Give researchers the flexibility to open one or multiple chapters within a title to gold open access.

Retrospective Open Access

Convert full books or individual chapters to gold open access after publication. This route benefits from tiered pricing which is linked to the date of publication.

Open multiple titles or chapters from your institution’s researchers to increase the visibility and impact of work.

Supporting Your Researchers

A bespoke solution to support your researchers in publishing open access. Simplify the process of publishing open access for authors, reduced administration for library staff and the benefit from discounted publication charges.

Publish a new book with our Gold Open Access Books programme and Taylor & Francis will complement it by converting another previously published title of your choice to Open Access*. Choose more than one previously published title to open and get the additional title BPC reduced by 40%.

When your researchers are looking to publish an open access book or chapter, they will usually be required to pay a book publishing charge (BPC). There are many funding options available to help them cover these fees, our team are here to help you navigate the funding landscape.
