Taylor & Francis has introduced an author rights pilot across Library and Information Science journals and our Archives and Heritage list (see the full list of journals). Many authors have already taken advantage of this pilot, which enables them to post their Author’s Original Manuscript (AOM) or Accepted Manuscript (AM) to any subject or institutional repository immediately upon publication.
What does this mean?
Authors who choose to publish in these journals are no longer asked to assign copyright. They now sign a license to publish, which allows Taylor & Francis to publish the Version of Record. Additionally, authors can choose to make their work green open access with no embargos applied.
Authors publishing in Archives, Heritage, and Library and Information Science journals are exempt from any embargo on the Accepted Manuscript (AM) version of their article (the AM is the version of your article that has been through peer review and accepted by a journal editor). This means you can post your AM to subject or institutional repositories, as well as to your personal or departmental websites, immediately upon publication. This includes posting to Facebook, Google groups, and LinkedIn, and linking from Twitter (the same conditions apply to posting of the Author Original Manuscript, your draft article).
To encourage citation of your work we recommend that you insert a link from your posted AM to the published article on Taylor & Francis Online with the following text:
“This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis in [JOURNAL TITLE] on [date of publication], available online: http://www.tandfonline.com/” [Article DOI].”
This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Taylor & Francis Group in Africa Review on 17/04/2014, available online:
Using a real DOI will create a link to the Version of Record on www.tandfonline.com.
