Taylor & Francis

Researchers at Lund University can publish open access without any charges in about 2300 journals from Taylor & Francis. The article processing charges are covered by an agreement between the publisher and Lund University Library.

How do I proceed as a corresponding author?

When authors submit a manuscript to a Taylor & Francis journal they need to state their affiliation with Lund University and use their LU email address. This way Taylor & Francis will automatically identify articles that potentially qualifies for open access publishing within the agreement.

On acceptance of the article, the library will verify the affiliation after which the article will be immediately open access when published.

About the agreement

The agreement includes Taylor & Francis’ about 2300 hybrid journals (subscription-based journals where articles can be available open access through a publication fee). Full open access journals are not included. There is a common cap for all agreement members set at 1450 APCs. When that number is reached the publish part of the agreement end. Only what Taylor & Francis classify as core content is included in the agreement.

The agreement is a national so-called “Read & Publish” agreement. This means that the article processing charges are already prepaid, since the agreement includes both the costs of the library's subscriptions as well as the costs of open access publishing. The agreement was negotiated by The National Library of Sweden and in addition to Lund University, about 40 other Swedish research institutes have joined.
