How do I publish with Taylor & Francis?

First, choose the journal that is most appropriate for your research and will reach the right readership. Make sure your article is suitable by reading the aims and scope of the journal. Include all the requirements that are included in the instructions for authors while you’re writing your paper, then click on the green “Submit an article” button to make your submission.

The editor of the journal will decide whether to take your article forward, which is when it will enter peer review. After peer review (which may require you to complete some revisions), your article will hopefully be accepted and enter the production process. Once your article is published, it can be found on Taylor & Francis Online, and you can start to promote it and build your research impact.

Our step-by-step guide takes you through all the stages in more detail.
