No, authors are required to declare upon submission that the manuscript is not under consideration elsewhere. This is why the detection of a duplicate submission is typically considered as a deliberate act.
What are the Taylor & Francis policies on authorship?
There are a few policies on authorship that apply to Taylor & Francis Group journals. Policies on corresponding authors, changes in authorship, author name changes on published articles, assistance with experiments and data analysis and beyond.
How do I determine if there is a conflict of interest?
Conflict of interest can also be known as ‘competing interest’. The range of possible conflicts are quite numerous and can be financial or non-financial in nature. A full disclosure statement is usually required when you submit your paper to a journal.
You can declare a competing interest in your cover letter or on the manuscript submission form in the journal’s online peer-review system. You should also include a relevant disclosure statement with the text of your article. You can do this in conjunction with any acknowledgments and details of funders.
Can I still publish in a Taylor & Francis journal if my paper has already been archived/a preprint has been published/a digital copy is available?
If you upload your Author’s Original Manuscript (AOM) to a non-commercial preprint server, you can subsequently submit the manuscript to a Taylor & Francis or Routledge journal. We do not consider posting on a preprint server to be duplicate publication and this will not jeopardize consideration for publication.
