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.

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.
