Open access agreements

Are you eligible for OA publishing support?

We’re partnering with institutions and funders around the world to help researchers publish gold open access in their chosen journals. These agreements can mean that individual 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 below if you’re eligible for this open access support.

Under this agreement corresponding authors at participating Austrian institutions, including those with Austrian Science Fund (FWF) support, can request funding towards the cost of publishing open access in Taylor & Francis Open Select (hybrid) journals.

China: Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences
Corresponding authors affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) and Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) can now publish open access in Taylor & Francis journals at a discounted rate. This agreement includes articles published in full open access journals, including Cogent OA, as well as authors who wish to make their articles OA in Open Select (hybrid) titles. The offer is also available to researchers who would like to retrospectively convert previously published articles to open access. Further details about this agreement is available on the CAMS website.

Germany: Friedrich-Althoff-Konsortium
FAK, the regional consortium for Berlin and Brandenburg, offers participating institutions an allocation of discounted APCs for all Taylor & Francis Open Select (hybrid) journals.
