Open access publishing for researchers in Slovenia

New read & publish agreement with COSEC consortium

Corresponding authors affiliated with participating institutions in Slovenia 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 COSEC consortium combines continued access to subscription articles with the opportunity to publish OA in over 2,300 Open Select titles. 

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 for open access publication under this agreement. If funding for your article is approved by your institution, you will receive an email asking you to select the Creative Commons license of your choice – find out about Creative Commons licenses

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 after the 1st January 2021 
  • Have a corresponding author affiliated with a participating institution (see below). 

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

 Open Select (hybrid) Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals are part of this agreement.  

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

Yes, COSEC 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.
