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.
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.
To be eligible, articles must:
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.
Yes, UNIT and Taylor & Francis have agreed a maximum number of open access articles to be published each year. 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 the library at your own institution for further details.
