If you’re a corresponding author affiliated with The Ohio State University, you can now choose to make your articles gold open access (OA) in Taylor & Francis Group journals without needing to pay an article publishing charge.
This pilot program, which runs until the end of 2022, is part of a ‘read & publish’ agreement that also gives The Ohio State University community ongoing access to more than 2,400 Taylor & Francis journals.
If you choose to make an article open access through this agreement, you’ll retain copyright and can select a Creative Commons license from the choices offered by the journal. The agreement covers full and hybrid open access Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals. On publication your article will then be free for anyone to read, anywhere, forever.
If you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
This agreement covers articles accepted for publication between July 8, 2020 and December 31, 2022 by Ohio State corresponding authors published in Taylor & Francis and Routledge Open and Open Select (hybrid) journals. Use the open access cost finder for the full list of journals offering open access publication options.
Articles, such as original papers and review papers, are eligible for funding. Manuscript types which are not Articles, such as Editorials, Announcements, Reports, and Book Reviews, are not covered by this open access publishing agreement.
The article publishing charges (APCs) for publishing open access are covered in full under the new agreement for currently affiliated Ohio State corresponding authors. If the journal has additional costs, such as page charges or color charges, these fees will still apply and will not be covered by the agreement.
Please contact The Ohio State University Libraries for further details.
