Corresponding authors affiliated with participating institutions in Ireland are now eligible to publish open access (OA) in Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open Select (hybrid) journals at no cost to themselves.
This ‘read & publish’ agreement between Taylor & Francis Group and the IReL consortium combines continued access to Taylor & Francis subscription journals with the opportunity to publish OA in around 2,000 open select titles.
You need to let us know that you would like to be considered for open access publication. To do this, once you receive your Author Publishing Agreement and confirm the relevant personal details, select ‘Yes’ on the screen below to opt in. Once you have signed the agreement, your institution will be notified of your request. If your request is approved, we will notify you by email. If your request is not approved, you can either fund the APC through a different source or publish your article subscription, which does not require the payment of an APC.
To be eligible, articles must:
Most Open Select (hybrid) Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals are part of this agreement. Please speak to your librarian to check whether the journal you are submitting to is included.
Yes, IReL and Taylor & Francis have agreed a maximum number of open access articles to be published for each year of this partnership. Please be aware that this limit might therefore be reached before the end of a year, at which point the open access publishing element of the agreement will be paused until the beginning of the following year. However, even if the article allocation is reached, individual institutions may still have funds to continue supporting OA publishing. Please talk to your library for further details.
Please contact Taylor & Francis if you change affiliation between submission and acceptance.
