Open access publishing for researchers in Norway

New 'read and publish' agreement with UNIT

Corresponding authors based at participating institutions in Norway 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 UNIT, the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education and Research, combines continued access to the Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals and the opportunity to publish open access.

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. If funding for your article is approved, you will receive an email asking you to choose a Creative Commons License.

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 November 18 2019 and December 31 2022.
  • Have a corresponding author based at one of the participating Norwegian institutions (see below).
  • Be published in a Taylor & Francis or Routledge Open Select (hybrid) journal that has a standard article publish charge. Use our open access options finder to explore the full list of Open Select titles.

Which publishing license will apply?

The Research Council of Norway (Norges forskningsråd) and the participating institutions recommend the license Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). You will have the opportunity to select either CC BY or CC BY-NC-ND. Read more information about Creative Commons licences.
