Can the APC be discounted or waived?
We’re partnering with groups of institutions around the world to help researchers publish gold open access in their chosen journals. These agreements can mean that authors benefit from much reduced article publishing charges (APCs) or that they are able to publish open access at no cost to themselves. Find out if you’re eligible for this open access support.
A number of individual institutions have also signed up to an open access membership scheme with us, which means that you may be eligible to have your APC covered by your institution, or be entitled to a discount on the APC. View a list of current partners and further information.
Authors publishing in many of our fully open access Taylor & Francis or Routledge Open journals are eligible to apply for a full or partial waiver of the APC if they are based in countries classified by the World Bank as a ‘Low-Income Economy’ or ‘Lower-Middle-Income Economy’. Please visit the APC discounts and waivers page for more details.
Waivers may also be considered in exceptional cases for researchers who aren’t eligible for the policies above. Please visit the APC discounts and waivers page for more details.
