What’s an eprint?
An eprint is a link to the online version of your article, which you can share with your friends and colleagues to give them instant access to your work.
How many eprints do I get, and how can I share these?
As the author, you can access your article whenever you want on Taylor & Francis Online, using Authored Works. In addition, all authors (including co-authors) receive 50 free eprints to share (provided we have the email addresses).
Your eprint link ensures you can quickly and easily give anyone free access to your online article up to 50 times.
Many researchers share their eprint link on social media. This is a very effective way to get lots of people reading your article as soon as it’s published. Although that does mean social media sharing can reduce the number of available eprints quite quickly.
Use the social share icons to the right of your article in Authored Works to share your eprints on your chosen social network. When people click your shared link, they will be directed to your article without needing to register or sign in. Please note that you will be able to edit your message on your chosen social network before posting.
How do I access my eprints?
As soon as your article is published on Taylor & Francis Online, you’ll receive an email from us which will include your eprint link. This will be sent to the email address you used while your article was going through production.
You can also check your eprint link by logging into Authored Works and clicking through to your articles. Your eprint link is in a grey box under the social media icons for each article (you can just click on these to start sharing your article via social media immediately).
What happens when my eprint link reaches its limit of 50 downloads?
The link will continue to work after 50 people have downloaded your article, by directing them to the article’s abstract page. And, as the author, you will always have free access to your article via Authored Works.
