Open access agreements

Are you eligible for open access publishing support?

We’re partners with global institutions and funders to support researchers to publish gold open access in their chosen journals. These agreements often mean that individual authors can publish open access at no cost to themselves or benefit from discounted article publishing charges (APCs). Our short guide to open access publishing definitions has more information on gold open access and APCs.

On this page, you can explore our current open access agreements for Taylor & Francis and F1000, find out if you’re eligible, and how to access the funds. F1000 also has a number of open research partner publishing venues, where eligible authors can publish at no direct cost to themselves.
