If you’re a researcher based at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the University Libraries have made funds available to help you take advantage of the benefits of publishing in Taylor & Francis Open journals:
“Sharing research through open access provides benefits for authors (greater reach and use of their works), for UNLV (showcasing the research scholarship to potential students and faculty), and to the public, lawmakers, non-profit organizations, and small businesses by ensuring that research that could impact their decisions is available to them.”

From submission, through to the point your article is accepted for publication in an open access journal, you can apply for up to $1,500 open access publishing support. APCs for all articles supported by the UNLV Open Article Fund are also discounted by 5%.
Make your application by completing the form on the UNLV Open Article Fund website.

How can publishing open access benefit you?
When you publish your article gold open access, it is made freely available online, allowing anyone, anywhere to read your research. This means you can benefit from:
- Increased visibility: No barriers to readership means researchers worldwide can read and cite your research.
- Greater impact: Your research will be accessible to policymakers, practitioners and professionals in your field. Your open access article could be used to inform and develop public policy, be read by the general public, or be picked up by the media.
- More freedom: Publishing under a CC-BY license means you can share your research across your networks, including social media.
- Improved discoverability: Many of our journals are indexed in internationally-recognized citation and abstract databases, including the Journal Citation Report (JCR), Scopus, and PubMed, increasing the likelihood of your work being found and read by your colleagues.
- Robust peer review: All accepted papers will undergo a thorough and robust peer review process, where each manuscript is objectively and constructively evaluated on its scholarly merit and integrity.
