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 behavioral 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.
Knowledge Unlatched collections are living collections that continue to expand for a certain period of time, these collections are financed through libraries coming together to crowd fund key research and making it available to all
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.
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.
Technology is an important aspect to keep in mind when creating Open Access content and making free digital content available to all. The goal of Open Access is to allow content to be easily found, re-used and have world impact. This would not be the case if the content was behind a paywall.
Open Access is key to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals are reliant on improved access to information and knowledge, therefore creating a clear link between Open Access, access to information, and sustainable development.
