Corresponding authors based at participating institutions in Finland are now eligible to publish open access in Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open Select (hybrid) journals at no cost to the author.
A ‘read and publish’ agreement between Taylor & Francis Group and FinELib consortium, combines continued access to Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals with the opportunity to publish a set number of articles open access during the agreement period, until the end of 2022.
What should I do to make my research open access?
You don’t need to do anything. All new research meeting the requirements below will automatically be considered for open access publication under this agreement.
