Open access: new agreement benefits Max Planck researchers

If you are a Max Planck researcher, a new agreement will enable you to publish open access in 2,390 Taylor & Francis journals without having to pay an article publishing charge.

Under the centrally funded scheme all corresponding authors based at a Max Planck Institute are now eligible to have their manuscript published gold OA under a CC BY license. This offers an increase in open access publishing options for Max Planck researchers, with Taylor & Francis’ portfolio of titles stretching across the sciences, medicine, social sciences and humanities. The agreement covers full and hybrid OA Taylor & Francis Group journals, including Routledge and Cogent OA titles.

Max Planck researchers will also benefit from access to a set of Taylor & Francis subscription journals, which Max Planck Institutes can add to up to an agreed limit to meet reader demand.

Dr. Ralf Schimmer, Head of Information at the Max Planck Digital Library, said of the agreement, “This constitutes a significant service improvement for our authors and underscores the transformation to open access.”
