Open access publishing for researchers in Luxembourg

New read & publish agreement with University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and Bibliothèque nationale du Luxembourg (BnL)

Corresponding authors affiliated with participating institutions (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) or National Library of Luxembourg) in Luxembourg are now eligible to publish open access (OA) in most Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals at no cost to themselves.

This ‘read & publish’ agreement between Taylor & Francis Group and the Luxembourgish partner institutions combines continued access to Taylor & Francis subscription journals with the opportunity to publish OA in over 2,000 titles. The publishing element includes both full open access and Open Select (hybrid) journals.

What should I do to make my research open access? 

You don’t need to do anything. All accepted research meeting the requirements below will automatically be considered by your institution for open access publication under this agreement. If funding for your article is approved, you will receive an email asking you to choose a publishing license. Please select the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license, which is the option mandated by National Library, University of Luxembourg, LIST and LIH.

What are the requirements? 

To be eligible, articles must: 

  • Be original research articles. Other types of paper, such as Editorials, Announcements, and Book Reviews, are not covered by this agreement.
  • Be accepted for publication between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2023.
  • Have a corresponding author affiliated with a participating institution (see below).

Which journals can I publish in open access under this agreement? 

The vast majority of Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals are part of this agreement, including full open access and Open Select (hybrid) titles. Only those titles with the highest article publishing charges and subscription-only journals are excluded. Please speak to your librarian to check whether the journal you are submitting to is covered by this agreement. 

Is there a limit to the number of articles that can be made open access under this agreement? 

Yes, the partner institutions 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. Articles eligible for FNR’s (Fonds national de Recherche) central open-access funds will always be covered. Please talk to your library for further details.

Which institutions are part of this agreement? 

  • Bibliothèque nationale de Luxembourg (BNL) 
  • Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) 
  • Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) 
  • University of Luxembourg
